In this paper, a new saturated control design for uncertain power systems is proposed. The developed saturated control scheme is based on linear matrix inequality (LMI) optimization to achieve prescribed dynamic performance measures, e.g., settling time and damping ratio. In this design, the closed-loop poles are forced to lie within a desired region. The proposed design provides robustness against system uncertainties. The simulation results of both a single machine infinite bus and a multi-machine power systems are given to validate the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
