This paper addresses a robust decentralized proportional-integral (PI) control design for power system load-frequency regulation with communication delays. In the proposed methodology, the PI-based load-frequency control (LFC) problem is reduced to a static output feedback control synthesis for a multiple-delay system. The proposed control method gives a suboptimal solution using a developed iterative linear matrix inequalities algorithm via the mixed H 2/H infin control technique. The control strategy is suitable for LFC applications that usually employ the PI control. To demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed control strategy, an experimental study has been performed at the Research Laboratory, Kyushu Electric Power Company, Japan.
