Abstract

In this study, determination of the optimal proportional-integral-derivate (PID) parameters with Gravitational search algorithm (GSA) for automatic generation control (AGC) of the two area non-reheat thermal power system is proposed. GSA is applied to search for the optimal PID controller parameters to minimize various performance indexes. The designed PID controller with the proposed approach is simulated under variety of operating conditions. Simulation results are shown that dynamic performance of the two area non-reheat thermal power system is improved by the designed PID controller with the proposed approach.
