This article presents the design of optimized fuzzy logic-based power system stabilizer (FPSS) to enhance small signal stability using bat algorithm (BA). The proposed optimization of scaling factors of FPSS is considered with an objective function based on square error minimization to guarantee the stability of nonlinear models of test system using BA. The BA-optimized FPSS (BAFPSS) controller is applied to the standard IEEE ten-machine thirty-nine-bus test power system model in the decentralized manner, and the performance is compared with the robust fuzzy controller. The robustness is tested by considering four different models of the test power system with different fault locations to establish the superiority of the proposed BAFPSS over the FPSS.

Keywords: fuzzy power system stabilizer; bat algorithm; BA-optimized fuzzy power system stabilizer; IEEE ten-machine thirty-nine-bus test power system
