Power Systems

Derives Lyapunov based control strategies for power oscillation damping of a variety of FACTS devices. The controllers require only information available at the bus at which the device is installed.

[Introduces a new (exact) mechanical analog for power systems that can be easily animated to demonstrate important issues in power systems design and control, including load flows, dynamic stability, islanding, use of FACTS devices, and dispatch options.]
