Abstract

The aim of this research is improving the Iraqi control center's capabilities for monitoring and controlling the electrical network by adopting the properties of multi-agent technology to enhance power system transient stability. The idea was demonstrated by two agent's strategy, the first agent is a prediction one that will predict power system instability by a transient stability program using the PEBS method, the second strategy agent is a control agent which use the methodology of increasing power transfer through the healthy portion of network during disturbances by a load flow program using fast decoupled method. The proposed strategies are applied to a realistic power system, the Iraqi supper Grid electrical network. Results show that the proposed technique is very powerful for power system instability prediction and control.
