This paper presents the modeling and application of an optimal controller for frequency and tie-line power stability for a two-area interconnected hydrothermal power plant having tandem compound non-reheat turbines integrated with wind power generation having doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind turbines in each area. The power system is interconnected using AC tie-lines. The designed optimal controller was implemented and the system dynamic responses for three power system model states were obtained considering a 1% load fluctuation in one of the areas. The optimal control strategy presented in this paper depends on formulating an error value and finding the feedback gains corresponding to each state of the system, which are easily attainable as outputs. The analysis was undertaken and verified by calculating the performance index value, the closed ring real and imaginary values, finding the feedback gains, and through graphical simulations of the three system models under investigation. The output of the optimal controller was enhanced when the DFIG-based wind turbines were installed in each area combined with a superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) unit and a thyristor control phase shifter (TCPS).
