Impact of the system for different combinations of I. INTRODUCTION control signals is also investigated. Power system oscillations are an inevitable phenomenon of the system. Faults and weak protective relaying operation can cause the oscillation II.SYSTEM DYNAMIC MODEL to collapse the system [1]. In order to damp these power system oscillations, different devices and The power system [8] that is studied in this paper control methods are used [2]. FACTS technology is consists of a synchronous generator connected to the newest way of improving power system operation transmission lines and an infinite bus via two transformers. The UPFC consists of an excitation controllability and power transfer limits which has transformer (ET), a boosting transformer (BT), two been added in the stream with the progress in the three-phase GTO based voltage source converters field of power electronics devices.

At each control interval an MPC algorithm attempts to i 1 optimize future plant behavior by computing a sequence of future manipulated variable adjustments where t is the current time; H is the length of the [9]. Figure 2 shows the basic working principle of optimization horizon; ΔT is the sample period. If i > MPC. Prediction horizon (TP) is the time range which, 0, then xt  iT (u ) denotes the controlled trajectory at time t  iT from xt under piecewise controls future system outputs are predicted in it. Control horizon (Tc) is the time steps number that input control sequence calculations for the prediction u  [u0 (t ),..., ui 1 (t )] U H ; h is the running cost; horizon are done [9]. In this plant model, value of and g is the terminal cost. We assume that h is non- prediction horizon is taken 20 and control horizon is negative function and g satisfies g ( x)   x  xeq 2. for all x, where xeq is some desired equilibrium and Set-point α>0 is some positive constant. That is, g is an past future trajectory ‘upward’ function whose lowest point is at the system equilibrium. This condition on g(.) ensures Predicted Output that the control design attempts to reach the system equilibrium.

It can stable several states but takes a long time for different states.that. Among the four signals, mB gives the best output making Then, the responses are observed for different combinations ofall the 4 states stable at a reasonable time of below 6 seconds control signals two at a time. Four different combinations of(Fig. 6). two control signals are observed in this paper in fig (9-12).An exceptional and effective feature of MPC is the ability toprovide support to the MIMO plants.

But the other 4 states are control signals, it has been found that the responses settled down within 3 seconds. Combination of mB-δB are significantly improved for every case than (Fig. 11), mE-mB (Fig. 9) and mB-δE (Fig. 12) show applying them individually. Among the 5 the best responses here making all the 5 states stable combinations, combination of δE and δB takes a long within a short time of 3 seconds. CONCLUSION proposed model is the use of MPC with four control In this paper by linearizing and combining the signals of UPFC at a time. equations of single machine infinite bus power system and unified power flow controller, a complete Appendix: state space model of SMIB power system including UPFC was presented.
