Design of an optimal controller requires the optimization of differential evolution performance measures that are often no commensurable and competing with each other. Being a population based approach; Differential Evolution (DE) is well suited to solve designing problem of TCSC – based controller. This paper investigates the application of DE-based multi-objective optimization technique for the design of a Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC)-based supplementary damping controller. The designing objective is to improve the power system stability with minimum control effort. The proposed technique is applied to generate Pareto set of global optimal solutions to the given multi-objective optimization problem. Further, a fuzzy-based membership value assignment method is employed to choose the best compromise solution from the obtained Pareto solution set. Simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed approach.
