REVIEW ON LOAD FREQUENCY CONTROL TECHNIQUES
Automatic frequency regulation or control is aimed to control the individual turbine-generator systems to control the system's frequency. In addition, maintaining power balance is another goal of power system operation and control. Sudden change in load causes mismatch between generation and load demand. This mismatch causes frequency deviation and it is one of the major problems in power system stability. This frequency deviation brings system instability which may cause system collapse. Numerous control strategies have been proposed in recent decades for load frequency control in power networks. In this work, a thorough literature review on load frequency regulation in power systems is presented. The purpose of this article is to outline the various load frequency control techniques used power systems. Review can be carried out using a numerous approach. In this review work, the method adopted for conducting the review of the load frequency control is by explaining in detail about the article published. This detail include method applied, area/amount disturbance occurred, advantages and observations are presented in the paper. The research limitations and novel research directions in the area of load frequency control were mentioned in the paper's conclusion.
