A fuzzy logic controlled bridge type fault current limiter for transient stability augmentation of multi-machine power system

Abstract

This paper proposes a fuzzy logic controlled bridge type fault current limiter (FCL) to enhance the transient stability of multi-machine power systems. The transient stability performance of the fuzzy logic controlled bridge type FCL is compared with that of another static nonlinear controlled bridge type FCL. The total kinetic energy (TKE) of the generators in the system is used to determine the transient stability enhancement index. Also, the critical clearing time has been presented as a stability limit. Instead of conventional reclosing, the optimal reclosing of circuit breakers is considered. Simulations are performed by using the Matlab/Simulink software. Simulation results of both permanent and temporary faults at different points of the IEEE 30-bus power system indicate that the fuzzy logic controlled bridge type FCL can enhance the transient stability of the system well. Also, the performance of the proposed fuzzy logic controller is better than that of the static nonlinear controller.
