This note describes the modeling of the power and voltage control loop of a thermal power plant of 180 MW. The modeling is based upon full-scale measurements at the Flevo power plant of the PGEM. A relatively simple ninth-order mathematical model of one unit for several working points has been developed. Based on this model the existing controller structure has been analyzed and an improved voltage control system designed. The design method is based on a state-feedback technique and pole placement. By means of computer simulations in an extended nonlinear model of this unit, including the grid, the existing and the newly developed control algorithms are compared. Field tests have been carried out to verify the results of the designed control algorithms.
