This thesis investigates the robust and coordinated design of multiple damping controllers to ameliorate the damping characteristics of a bulky power system. A new methodology is proposed in this thesis for VSC-MTDC and FACTS damping controllers based on multiple control objectives and system multi-model. The key feature of the methodology is the robust and coordinated performance of the damping controllers. The formulated BMI-based optimization problem is solved systematically via a two- step approach. System multi-model is established in the design for the robustness of the controllers under system disturbances and changing operating conditions. The sequential design of a series of SISO controllers with properly selected feedback signals minimizes the negative interactions among the controllers. The approach is applied to a three-terminal VSC-MTDC and subsequently exerted with one terminal of VSC-MTDC and a TCSC to incorporate multiple devices and examine the generality and feasibility of the design. Given the flexible internal control configuration of VSC converter, the assessment of the impact of the d-q decoupled control modes on the effectiveness and flexibility of the damping controllers is carried out. Real-Time Digital Simulator is used to examine the effectiveness and robustness of the damping controllers under various system operating conditions and disturbances.
