This paper presents a new nonlinear controller design approach for a hydraulic power plant focusing on Load Frequency Control aspect. It is based on input state feedback linearization and sliding mode/H∞ control. Simulation results for a nonlinear dynamic model of entire hydropower plant are presented and compared to those from the classical linear PI controller. A novel two-stage scheme for the nonlinear controller design with integral feedback is presented for a fast transient response and zero steady state error.
