Power system oscillations have been long recognized as a problem of great interest in the electric power industry. The main objective of this work focuses on stabilization of inter-area power oscillations motivated by the fact that many catastrophic blackout events with the consequent multi-billion-dollar economic losses were due to the presence of unstable inter-area modes of oscillations. This study will explore dual fuzzy logic controllers to orchestrate a coordinated switching strategy for dual dynamic braking resistors, as a cost-effective method, for stabilization of inter-area power oscillations in Kundur’s two-area test system. Comparative simulation study via MATLAB/Simulink-based modeling and simulation environment of the test model with and without the suggested stabilization regime will demonstrate its effectiveness in stabilizing inter-area oscillations.
