Abstract
Load frequency control (LFC) is one of the most profitable ancillary services of power system market presently. The main goal of LFC is to reduce zero steady-state error for frequency deviations. In the present review paper of LFC problem, worldwide history of various types of controllers, control strategy, smart techniques and methodologies which are implemented and which can be implemented at generation, transmission and distribution areas of a power system. Moreover, ABT mechanism in India is implemented in 2002 to regulate grid frequency. Out of this in deregulated power system energy storage with the potential of different types of energy storage at distribution area in the power system has been highlighted. In a smart grid due to intermittent nature of the renewable energy sources (wind and solar), unpredictable daily and seasonal variations there may be an imbalance between supply and demand which results in deviations in the grid frequency. To eliminate the problem of LFC Electrical energy storage (EES) is technologies are listed. LFC problem with different soft computing techniques such as Genetic Algorithm (GA), Neural Network (NN), Fuzzy Logic (FG), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFP), Tabu Search Algorithm (TSA) has been carried out. This literature review will help the new researcher to give the guideline to work in the area of load frequency control.
