In this paper, a new control approach is proposed for the transient stabilization of a single-machine infinite-bus power system. The proposed method is based on an LPV (linear parameter varying) modelling of the nonlinear power system and gain-scheduled output feedback control. It is well-known that when large disturbances or a fault occurs, the nonlinearity inherent in power systems can no longer be ignored. The proposed method can handle the nonlinear model directly. First, we show that the nonlinear model can be transformed equivalently into an LPV system with the rotor angle as the scheduling parameter. Then, a gain-scheduled output feedback controller is designed based on robust pole placement and L2-gain minimization. Simulation results verify that the proposed method is better than well-tuned conventional PSS control.
