Abstract: Smartgrid has the advantage that if the generation capacity exceeds the maximum demand, the exess power can be fed back to the utility grid or it can be stored. Thus power flow becomes bidirectional in smartgrid. Basics of grid operations, Load-frequency control, Reactive power-voltage control, Sources of reactive power, Power system stability (Angle, Frequency, Voltage), Excerpts from technical standards and grid codes, Generator capability chart, Generator excitation system, Power system stabilizer (PSS) are the factors to be considered which influences the cost of electricity in India power market.
Keywords: Power System Stabilizer (PSS), Load-frequency Control, Reactive Power-Voltage Control, Gas Turbine Power Projects (GTPP) , Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC).
Scope of the Article: Robotics and Control
