The usage of communication channels introduces time delays into load frequency control (LFC) schemes. Those delays may degrade dynamic performance, and even cause instability, of a closed-loop LFC scheme. In this paper, a delay-dependent robust method is proposed for analysis/synthesis of a PID-type LFC scheme considering time delays. The effect of the disturbance on the controlled output is defined as a robust performance index (RPI) of the closed-loop system. At first, for a preset delay upper bound, controller gains are determined by minimizing the RPI. Secondly, calculation of the RPIs of the closed-loop system under different delays provides a new way to assess robustness against delays and estimate delay margins. Case studies are based on three-area LFC schemes under traditional and deregulated environments, respectively. The results show that the PID-type controller obtained can guarantee the tolerance for delays less than the preset upper bound and provide a bigger delay margin than the existing controllers do. Moreover, its robustness against load variations and parameter uncertainties is verified via simulation studies.
