Optimal control is a branch of modern control theory that deals with designing controls for dynamic systems by minimizing a performance index that depends on the system variables. The paper is concerned with power system automatic generation control AGC in dynamic and steady state conditions. A design technique allows all roots of the system characteristic equations to be placed in desired locations, a regulator with constant gain vector K, and the Algebraic Riccati Equation ARE solution. Other approach to the design of optimal controllers by Pole Placement Techniques for feeding back the state variables through a regulator with constant gains. Optimal control deals with designing controls for dynamic systems by minimizing a performance index that depends on the system variables. Application of these optimal controls to power systems control is given through a state space model. The effects of the governor speed regulation on the system stability of a two area systems by Matlab Toolbox.
