Abstract: The paper discusses practical implementation and computational aspects of an AGC scheme based on model predictive control (MPC) for a real-world power system, namely the all-island Irish transmission system. This system is particularly interesting from the frequency regulation point of view due to the high penetration of wind power generation. This leads to a significant reduction in system inertia, which in turn impacts on the ability of the system operator to regulate the system frequency. The paper compares the performance of the MPC-based AGC with a conventional AGC based on PI controllers and draws relevant conclusions. The case study is a high-resolution simulation of a 1479-bus model of the Irish electrical grid with significant wind penetration, stochastic loads, and controller delays.
