The objective of this proposed work is to develop decoupled modulation control for damping inter-area low frequency oscillations, so the damping control can be more effective and easier to design with less interference among different oscillation modes in the system. To minimize the interference and improve effectiveness, this proposed work will develop a decoupled modulation control mechanism oriented for being used in conjunction with advanced power flow control devices such as FACTS and HVDC transmission.

The objective is the development of a grid operations procedure using modal analysis for improving grid stability based on phasor measurements. To meet this need, modal analysis will be further explored in this project to develop real-time applications for grid operations. In prior work, we have extensively studied the mechanism of power grid low-frequency oscillations and identified the correlation of low damping and power flow of key transmission lines and generators. A MANGO procedure was established.
