MVMO-based approach for optimal placement and tuning of supplementary damping controller

This paper introduces an approach based on the Swarm Variant of the Mean-Variance Mapping Optimization (MVMO-S) to solve the multi-scenario formulation of the optimal placement and coordinated tuning of power system supplementary damping controllers (POCDCs). The effectiveness of the approach is evaluated based on the classical IEEE 39-bus (New England) test system. Numerical results include performance comparisons with other metaheuristic optimization techniques, namely, comprehensive learning particle swarm optimization (CLPSO), genetic algorithm with multi-parent crossover (GA-MPC), differential evolution DE algorithm with adaptive crossover operator, linearized biogeography-based optimization with reinitialization (LBBO), and covariance matrix adaptation evolution strategy (CMA-ES).
