Graphical Abstract:


Background: This paper presents dynamic performance analysis of isolated wind-diesel power system. A dual mode controller is proposed for pitch control of wind turbine generator.

Methods: The parameters of the controller are optimized by Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm. The hybrid model was simulated with the proposed load frequency controller (LFC) by considering step load perturbation. The minimization of time multiplied integral of absolute error is considered as the objective function. The performance of the proposed controller is compared with the published result of the optimal controller. Further, the performance of the system is investigated by incorporating Super Conducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) and Fuel Cell (FC). Also, the dynamic performance is investigated for changing step load perturbations. Furthermore, the response of the system is analyzed towards random loading.

Results: Finally, sensitivity analysis is done by varying the system parameters and operating conditions from their nominal values.

Conclusion: The simulation results show that the proposed dual mode DE optimized controller gives better transient and steady state response.

Keywords: Load frequency control, differential evolution algorithm, wind-diesel system, pitch control, SMES, fuel cell.
