Abstract

Renewable energy sources (RESs) are getting prominence due to the scarcity of fossil fuels. On the other hand, most RESs are connected to the grid through inverters or converters, which are power electronic interfaces. Utilizing converters and inverters will significantly decrease the power system's inertia due to the absence of rotating mass. As a result, the use of advanced technologies to achieve and maintain frequency stability is essential in power systems. This work proposes two new control coordination i) virtual inertia and ii) superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) of load frequency control (LFC) along with a PI controller. Since SMES technology and virtual inertia are both effective energy storage systems and frequency stabilizers, respectively, this research develops two controllers to emulate inertia utilizing SMES. The mathematical model is developed to facilitate control design and implementation in simulation platform. The developed techniques show better performance in reducing the frequency deviation of highly RESs integrated system. Three loads are considered in this study to check the stability and effectiveness of the proposed control coordination. Determining the best approach by analyzing the two controllers individual outputs is one of this work's main purposes.
