Abstract

In this paper, a neural Pseudoderivative control (PDF) is applied to a nonlinear mathematical model of the Dinorwig pumped - storage hydroelectric power station. The response of the system with this auto-tuning controller is compared with that of a classic controller, currently implemented on the system. The results show how the application of PDF control to a hydroelectric pumped-storage station improves the dynamic response of the power plant, even when multivariable effects are taken into account.
