This paper is arranged in six sections. In section II, a TABLE I. LINGUISTIC VARIABLES OF FLC
concise review of the fuzzy logic configuration, MF and fuzzy
logic process is discussed. In Section III, the ANFIS design
procedure is discussed. Consequently, in Section IV,
description of the test system is mentioned. In Section V,
simulation results are shown. Section VI brings a conclusion of
this work.


A. Structure of FLC
The basic structure of FLC is shown in Fig. 1. The system
input received by the FLC is turned into fuzzy form. On the
basis of fuzzy rules, input, and MFs, the controller obtains the
output in fuzzy form and finally, turns the output in nonfuzzy
form [12].

Figure 1. FLC structure [12].

The design steps of FLC are as follows.

 Define input and output variables.
 Choice of linguistic variables.
 Selection of fuzzy rule base.
 Defuzzification action.
B. Fuzzy PSS Design in Mamdani Form Figure 2. Input MF (∆wr).

As a first line of FLPSS design input signals to the controller

are selected which characterize the dynamic performance of the
system. In this paper, a Mamdani form of FLC is used which
has two inputs and one output component. Inputs to the FLC
are the generator rotor angular speed deviation (∆wr) and
change of speed deviation (∆wr´) and the output is voltage
(∆VPSS). Seven linguistic fuzzy subset for each of the input-
output variables are used [12], [13]. The linguistic variables are
given in Table I. Two inputs, ∆wr and ∆wr´, generate 49 rules
that define the relation between input and output of FLC. Thus,
the stabilizing signals have been computed [13]. The rule table
of FLC is shown in Table II. Given that the exciter needed a
non-fuzzy signal, the centroid defuzzification approach is used
to obtain output. The MFs for inputs and output are shown in
Figures 2 to 4.

An ANFIS editor GUI is available in Fuzzy Logic Toolbox
in MATLAB. This toolbar receives input/output data set as
input. Thus, it creates a fuzzy inference system (FIS). FIS’s
MF parameters tend to be adjusted with the use of either only
a backpropagation algorithm, or in a permutation with a least
squares method [14]. The process agrees to the fuzzy systems Figure 5. ANFIS-PSS design procedure.
towards learning from the data they model. At this point of the
system, the input-output data pair is generated using the
FLPSS structure. Afterwards, a fuzzy inference system is
created by using the ANFIS model in MATLAB. Inputs are
used, namely Δwr and Δwr´, and output is ∆VPSS [13]. In this
paper, a Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) type FIS model is used. The
inputs are Gaussian membership type. Seven MFs are required
to cover the full range of respective inputs. In this way, 49
rules appear for the output function which demonstrates a
linear relation to the inputs. The ANFIS-PSS design follows
the steps below.

 Generate input-output data of the system using

 Then create a suitable ANFIS structure for a given
 Select number of training epoch.
 Using the test patterns train ANFIS until it performs
in the expected level.
 Then check the model validation.

procedure. Figures 6 and 7 show the training error and ANFIS
structure, respectively.

The multi-machine two area complex power system’s
dynamic performance has been analyzed with FLC- and
ANFIS-based PSS. The generators are modeled by a sixth
order state-space model and the dynamic load is presented by
an exponential model [16] with time constants for controlling
the dynamics of active and reactive power. For induction motor
loads, the time constants are in the range up to one second [16].
A symmetrical three phase to ground fault is applied at the
middle of the transmission line, which is cleared by tipping the
fault line to test the robustness of FLPSS and ANFISPSS. The
simulation results can be divided into the following two parts
depending on which controller is used.
(a) for the FLC and
(b) for the ANFIS controller.
Figure 9 shows the comparative analysis of rotor speed
deviation of generator 2 at A-1 for FLPSS and ANFIS-PSS

deviation is significantly large for FLPSS with respect to
