AUTOMATIC GENERATION CONTROL
AUTOMATIC GENERATION CONTROLBY HASSAN BEVRANIUnlike other supplies, electricity generally cannot be stored for later use; it must be used as it is generated. Therefore, generation must be dispatched instantaneously to respond to real-time changes in demand for electricity. To support this issue and to balance the generation and load, a secure and online control system known as automatic generation control (AGC) is needed. The AGC is required for simultaneous minimization of system frequency deviation and tie-line power changes to match the total generation and load demand, which is required for successful operation of interconnected power systems. The AGC system is responsible for frequency control and power interchange, as well …
