This paper presents the effect of the high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system based on voltage source converter (VSC) on the sub synchronous resonance (SSR) and low frequency oscillations (LFO) in power system. Also, a novel adaptive neural controller based on neural identifier is proposed for the HVDC which is capable of damping out LFO and sub synchronous oscillations (SSO). For comparison purposes, results of system based damping neural controller are compared with a lead-lag controller based on quantum particle swarm optimization (QPSO). It is shown that implementing adaptive damping controller not only improves the stability of power system but also can overcome drawbacks of conventional compensators with fixed parameters. In order to determine the most effective input of HVDC system to apply supplementary controller signal, analysis based on singular value decomposition is performed. To evaluate the performance of the proposed controller, transient simulations of detailed nonlinear system are considered.


Synchronous Resonance, Neural Network Damping Controller, Quantum Particle Swarm Optimization, HVDC Transmission Systems, Low Frequency Oscillations

1. Introduction

Series capacitors have extensively been used as a very effective means of increasing the power transfer capability of a transmission lines and improving transient and steady state stability limits of power systems [1] -[3] . These improvements are done by compensating reactance of the transmission lines. Besides of having remarkable profits for this kind of compensation for transmission line, the risk of sub synchronous resonance (SSR) could also be brought to the power system which could cause severe damages to the shaft of the generator unit [4] [5] . SSR is a condition of an electrical power system where electrical networks exchange energy with the mechanical system of the generator at frequencies less than the nominal frequency of the transmission line [6] . At this situation, the turbine-generator oscillates at a frequency corresponding to the torsional mode frequency. The torsional oscillations may raise and result in the failure of the turbine shaft.

Numerous papers have been published about damping the SSR phenomenon. Eigenvalue analysis [7] -[9] , frequency scanning method [10] -[12] , time domain simulation [13] and Using Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTSs) controllers such as the static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) [14] , the static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) [15] [16] , the unified power flow controller (UPFC) [17] , the thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) [18] and high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission systems [19] [20] have been applied to prevent the SSR in power systems.

HVDC systems interconnect large power systems and offer economic benefits. The usage of these systems includes for example non-synchronous interconnection, control of power flow, and modulation to increase stability limits. Adding a supplementary damping controller to the HVDC converters can improve the modal damping of the turbine-generator system and thus allows higher levels of compensation ratio of the power system [21] [22] .

In this paper, a power system including turbine-generator and VSC HVDC transmission system has been modeled as nonlinear state space equations. These equations have been linearized around operating point in order to analyze the small-signal stability, design damping phase compensator and measurement of oscillation mode controllability. It is well known that tuning a damping compensator for particular operating point cannot guarantee its appropriate performance in other points. Also, it may not capable to block oscillations that arise from critical disturbances like three-phase faults and may have unacceptable response in nonlinear power system model. More recently, adaptive neural networks (ANN) have been successfully applied to the identification and control of nonlinear systems because they have the advantages of high computation speed, generalization, and learning ability. ANNs techniques have been applied for power system damping controller design such as implementing PSS in a single-machine infinite bus system [23] -[25] and supplementary damping controller for FACTS devices [26] [27] .

As mentioned earlier, using of HVDC and FACTS supplementary damping controller has been studied by many researchers. However, designing an adaptive damping controller with ability to adapt itself with any work point of power system has not been studied. Furthermore, input-output signal selection to have most effect on oscillation mode has not been studied until now. So in this paper, a supplementary adaptive controller based on a neural network is proposed to damp power system LFOs and SSOs. Also, input-output coupling is performed via singular value decomposition (SVD) criteria to obtain best damping for power system. Proposed controller includes two individual parts: neural identifier and neural controller. The online training method is applied to training the controller through neural identifier and then the performance of supplementary neural controller, which can be tuned for overall operating points, is compared with phase compensator.

2. Power System Equipped by HVDC and Turbine-Generator System

In [28] [29] , it is shown that HVDC system can improve the stability of power system using a supplementary controller. Also, controllability of electromechanical mode based on system inputs is investigated using singular value decomposition. But, resistance of DC cable which is most important component of the DC transmission line has been neglected. So in this paper, single turbine-generator system equipped with a VSC HVDC system paralleled with compensated AC and full model of a DC transmission lines are considered as Figure 1.

The AC side of each converter is connected to the line through a coupling transformer. The first voltage source converter behaves as a rectifier. It regulates the DC link voltage and maintains the magnitude of the voltage at the connected terminal. The second voltage source converter acts as a controlled voltage source, which controls power flow in VSC HVDC feeder. The four input control signals to the VSC HVDC are where are the amplitude modulation ratio and are phase angle of the control signals of each VSC respectively. The HVAC transmission line is represented by a reactance and a series fixed capacitive

compensation. The pure reactance of ac line can be considered as:.

2.1. VSC HVDC Dynamical Model

By applying Park’s transformation and neglecting the resistance and transients of the coupling transformers, the VSC HVDC (Figure 1) can be modeled:

Also, from Figure 1 we have:




where, , and are the armature current, rectifier voltage, infinite bus current and voltage respectively. From Equations (10)-(12) we can have:



And for inverter side:



By linearizing Equations (1)-(7), (13)-(16) (Detail of parameters are described in Appendix):










2.2. Turbine-Generator Dynamic Model

The mechanical Turbine-Generator system corresponding to the electrical system (Figure 1) is shown in Figure 2 with detail. It consists of exciter (Ex.), generator (Gen.), intermediate pressure (IP), low-pressure (LP), high-pressure (HP) turbine sections. Every section has its own angular momentum constant M and damping coefficient D, also every two successive masses have their own shaft stiffness constant K. The equation of the ith mass of N-mass spring system shown in Figure 3 is given by:


3. Supplementary Damping Controller Design

The damping controllers are designed to produce an electrical torque in phase with the speed deviation to damp SSOs and LFOs. The four control parameters of the HVDC can be modulated in order to produce the damping torque. The speed deviation is considered as the input to the damping controllers. Methods for damping controller design are explained in the following sub sections.

3.1. Lead-Lag Compensator based on QPSO

The structure of HVDC based damping controller is shown in Figure 4. It consists of gain, signal washout and phase compensator blocks. The signal washout is the high pass filter that prevents steady changes in the speed from modifying the VSC HVDC input parameter. The value of the washout time constant Tw should be high enough to allow signals associated with oscillations in rotor speed to pass unchanged. From the viewpoint of the

washout function, the value of Tw is not critical and may be in the range of 1s to 20 s. Tw equal to 10s is chosen in the present studies. The parameters of the damping controller are obtained using the particle swarm optimization technique [25] . In a PSO system [26] -[28] , multiple candidate solutions coexist and cooperate simultaneously. Each solution candidate, called a “particle”, flies in the problem space (similar to the search process for food of a bird swarm) looking for the optimal position. A particle with time adjusts its position to its own experience, while adjusting to the experience of neighboring particles. If a particle discovers a promising new solution, all the other particles will move closer to it, exploring the region more thoroughly in the process.

PSO starts [26] with a population of random solutions “particles” in a D-dimension space. The ith particle is represented by. Each particle keeps track of its coordinates in hyperspace, which are associated with the fittest solution it has achieved so far. The value of the fitness for particle i (pbest) is also stored as. The global version of the PSO keeps track of the overall best value (gbest), and its location, obtained thus far by any particle in the population [26] [27] . PSO consists of, at each step, changing the velocity of each particle toward its pbest and gbest according to following equations:



where, pid = pbest and pgd = gbest.

PSO algorithm is as follow:

Step 1: Initialize an array of particles with random positions and their associated velocities to satisfy the inequality constraints.

Step 2: Check for the satisfaction of the equality constraints and modify the solution if required.

Step 3: Evaluate the fitness function of each particle.

Step 4: Compare the current value of the fitness function with the particles’ previous best value (pbest). If the current fitness value is less, then assign the current fitness value to pbest and assign the current coordinates (positions) to pbestx.

Step 5: Determine the current global minimum fitness value among the current positions.

Step 6: Compare the current global minimum with the previous global minimum (gbest). If the current global minimum is better than gbest, then assign the current global minimum to gbest and assign the current coordinates (positions) to gbestx.

Step 7: Change the velocities according to Equation (26).

Step 8: Move each particle to the new position according to Equation (27) and return to Step 2.

Step 9: Repeat Step 2 - 8 until a stopping criterion is satisfied or the maximum number of iterations is reached.

The main disadvantage is that the PSO algorithm is not guaranteed to be global convergent [28] . The dynamic behavior of the particle is widely divergent form that of that the particle in the PSO systems in that the exact values of xi and vi cannot be determined simultaneously. In quantum world, the term trajectory is meaningless, because xi and vi of a particle cannot be determined simultaneously according to uncertainty principle. Therefore, if individual particles in a PSO system have quantum behavior, the PSO algorithm is bound to work in a different fashion. In the quantum model of a PSO called here QPSO, the state of a particle is depicted by wave function W(x, t) instead of position and velocity [27] [28] . Employing the Monte Carlo method, the particles move according to the following iterative equation:



where u and k are values generated according to a uniform probability distribution in range [27] , the parameter is called contraction expansion coefficient, which can be tuned to control the convergence speed of the particle. In the QPSO, the parameter must be set as to guarantee convergence of the particle [24] . Where, Mbest called mean best position is defined as the mean of the pbest positions of all particles. i.e.:


The procedure for implementing the QPSO is given by the following steps [27] [28] :

Step 1: Initialization of swarm positions: Initialize a population (array) of particles with random positions in the n-dimensional problem space using a uniform probability distribution function.

Step 2: Evaluation of particle’s fitness: Evaluate the fitness value of each particle.

Step 3: Comparison to pbest (personal best): Compare each particle’s fitness with the particle’s pbest. If the current value is better than pbest, then set the pbest value equal to the current value and the pbest location equal to the current location in ndimensional space.

Step 4: Comparison to gbest (global best): Compare the fitness with the population’s overall previous best. If the current value is better than gbest, then reset gbest to the current particle’s array index and value.

Step 5: Updating of global point: Calculate the Mbest using Equation (30).

Step 6: Updating of particles’ position: Change the position of the particles according to Equation (29), where c1 and c2 are two random numbers generated using a uniform probability distribution in the range [0, 1].

Step 7: Repeating the evolutionary cycle: Loop to step 2 until a stop criterion is met, usually a sufficiently good.

3.2. Adaptive Neural Controller

In this section, a brief background on neural networks (NN) will be included covering mainly the topics that will be important in a discussion of NN applications in closed-loop control of discrete-time dynamical systems. Included are the NN topologies and recall, properties, training techniques, and control architectures. In this paper adaptive neural controller which is proposed to use in VSC HVDC model is as shown in Figure 5. This adaptive neural controller is consisted from two separate neural networks as identifier and controller described in following.

Structure of neural identifier is shown in Figure 6. f is activation function that is hyperbolic tangent. It is trained using error back propagation method that described in detail in following.

Coast function is defined as:

and are power system (i.e. rotor speed deviation) and neural identifier output, respectively.




where are weights between output and hidden layer. Using Equation (33), the sensitive coefficient of output neuron is calculated and output weights are updated according Equation (33).


Using sensitive coefficient in output neuron, it is possible to correct other weights between hidden and input layer.

Structure of neural identifier is shown in Figure 7. This is a feed forward network. Back propagation method used to train this network as described in following.

Coast function to training this network is:

Using Equations (36)-(38), it is possible to calculate the sensitive coefficient in output neuron of neural controller and correct the middle and output weights of neural controller.

4. Controllability of Oscillation Mode

The minimum singular value of the plant, evaluated as a function of frequency, is a useful measure for evaluating the feasibility of achieving acceptable control. If the inputs and outputs have been scaled, then it is possible with a manipulated input of unit magnitude (measured with 2 norms), achieve an output of magnitude of at least in any output direction. Generally must be as large as possible, at least to avoid input saturation, it is prefered larger than about 1 at all frequencies where control is required. For more detail, readers can refer to [29] -[31] . In the following, using SVD is explained for selection the output of system. To measure the controllability of the EM mode by a given input (control signal), SVD is employed. Mathematically, if G is an M × N complex matrix, then there exist unitary matrices U and V with dimensions of M × M and N × N,

respectively, such that: where, with where

and are the singular values of G. The minimum singular value represents the distance of the matrix G from all the matrices with a rank of [31] -[33] . This property can be used to quantify modal controllability. The matrix H can be written as where hi is a column vector corresponding to the ith input. The minimum singular value, of the matrix indicates the capability of the ith input to control the mode associated with the eigenvalue. Actually, the higher the, the higher the controllability of this mode by the input considered. As such, the controllability of the EM mode can be examined with all inputs in order to identify the most effective one to control the mode.

5. Simulation Results

SVD is employed to measure the controllability of the oscillation mode based on SSOs and LFOs from each of the four inputs:. The minimum singular value is estimated over a wide range of operating conditions. For SVD analysis, ranges from 0.01 to 1.5 Pu and. At this loading condition, the system model is linearized, the EM mode is identified, and the SVD-based controllability measure is implemented. The following can be noticed (Figure 8):

・ EM mode controllability via and is always higher than that of any other input.

・ The capabilities of and to control the EM mode is higher than that of and.

・ The EM mode is controllable with than with.

Responses of linear and nonlinear system for some masses are shown in Figure 9. Obviously system is unstable. To assess the effectiveness of the proposed stabilizers following conditions are considered for linear and nonlinear system (Table 1).

Lead-lag controller based on QPSO is designed based on following objective function:

where, is the speed deviation in turbine-generator system and tsim is the time range of simulation. For objective function calculation the time domain simulation of the power system model is carried out for the simulation period. It is aimed to minimize this objective function in order to improve the system response in terms of the settling time and over shoot. Controller parameters i.e. T1, T2, T3, T4, K are considered as particles. These parameters for Pe = 1.1, Qe = 0.3, Vt = 1 condition, after QPSO calculation, are as: T1 = 0.2, T2 = 0.091, T3 = 0.34, T4 = 1.1, K = −4.058. Neural controller and identifier have following specifications (Table 2).

Figure 9 shows the load angle of mass-A in linear and nonlinear system. Obviously both systems are unstable.

Figure 10 and Figure 11 show the linear and nonlinear power system responses respectively. According to these figures, neural network damps active power and rotor speed oscillations better than lead-lag based on QPSO controller for disturbances. It is clearly seen that the dynamical performance at different loading conditions for a neural controller has more quality because neural controller decrease setting time and peak amplitude. Figure 10 shows the lead-lag based QPSO compensator cannot stabilize nonlinear system. In these figures, a three phase

fault at t = 5 s accures and clears after 5 cycles. It is considered that phase compensator cannot damp oscillations for large disturbance. However neural controller has good responses in all operating conditions. As a result, neural controller improves dynamical and transient stability effectively.

6. Conclusion

In this paper, a novel dynamic model of turbine-generator system based on SSR which is equipped by VSC HVDC transmission system, is considered and supplementary controller is designed for improve power system stability and SSROs and LFOs oscillation damping. SVD has been employed to evaluate the oscillation mode controllability to the four VSC HVDC inputs. Also, for improving the system stability and damping oscillations, a neural controller is proposed. The simulation results has been carried out by SIMULINK/MATLAB show that the designed neural controller for system has the perfectly effect on dynamic and transient improvement in comparison with phase compensator.
