Power system stabilizing control has an important role in maintaining synchronism in power systems during major disturbances resulting from sudden changes of load and configuration. The thyristor-controlled series capacitor (TCSC) is one of the representative devices in flexible AC transmission systems. In this paper, robust TCSC controllers are applied to suppress disturbances in realistic power systems. H∞ control is adopted as the methodology of the robust controller design along with a linear matrix inequality (LMI), which solves the Lyapunov inequality without the weighting coefficients used in other control theories. In the proposed design, load changes are treated as a system uncertainty in the LMI approach. The proposed LMI-based approach is shown to be effective in the design of TCSC controllers to enhance robustness and response by simulations on a test system.
