Developing Chemical Reaction Differential Evolution Method For Optimization Of PSS Parameters

This paper proposes a novel algorithm to obtain a set of optimal power system stabilizer (PSS) parameters in a 16- machine, 68-bus power system under three operating conditions. A novel algorithm, called Chemical Reaction Differential Evolution (CRDE), was developed to rapidly and efficiently search for a set of optimal PSS parameters. CRDE uses the search concept of chemical reaction optimization (CRO) and differential evolution (DE) to enhance the probability of finding an optimal solution. Eigenvalue analysis and nonlinear time domain simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
