Damping inter-area oscillation by using a permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) wind turbine is considered. The PMSG wind turbine is connected to the IEEE-30 bus power system at different buses. H-infinity design controller is proposed to modulate the power where the input of the H-infinity control is the variation of the local grid generator speed and the output is feedback to activate the PMSG speed control, blade pitch angle control and dc voltage control. MATLAB/SIMULINK is used in this study. The IEEE-30 bus system is reduced to 7 buses based on the number of generators to simplify the stability study. The method is applied to a seven-area power system that exhibits undamped oscillations. Results presented in this study demonstrate the effectiveness of the wind generator in increasing system damping considerably.
