Abstract: In this study, the automatic voltage regulator for a synchronous generator has a been designed based on the Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller in which is tuned using the particle swarm optimization. The output voltage of the synchronous generator will be regulated, through the proposed structure and to check its effectiveness, another two controllers have been designed for comparison namely, unity closed loop system and pole placement method. The comparison shows that the step response performances under different values of the damping torque coefficients (settling time, peak value, overshoot percentage and steady-state error) was better when adopting the PID controller tuned using PSO. The bode plot measures (gain margin and phase margin) was also studied.
