It has been verified that a controllable series capacitor with a suitable control scheme can improve transient stability and help to damp electromechanical oscillations. A question of great importance is the selection of the input signals and a control strategy for this device in order to damp power oscillations in an effective and robust manner. Based on Lyapunov theory a control strategy for damping of electromechanical power oscillations in a multi-machine power system is derived. Lyapunov theory deals with dynamical systems without inputs. For this reason, it has traditionally been applied only to closed-loop control systems, that is, systems for which the input has been eliminated through the substitution of a predetermined feedback control. However, in this paper, we use Lyapunov function candidates in feedback design itself by making the Lyapunov derivative negative when choosing the control. This control strategy is called control Lyapunov function for systems with control inputs. Also, two input signals for this control strategy are used. The first one is based on local information and the second one on remote information derived by the single machine equivalent method.
