The paper is presenting an approach to control the turbine dynamics in order to control the electricity generation. Our challenge is to control the discharge or the flow rate with the use of electrical controllers. A pole placement (PP) based state feedback controller (SFC) has been proposed in this paper to stabilize the system in MATLAB. Traditionally, the flow is controlled with the help of governor as a mechanical controller. Here, turbine dynamics include the height of dam, value of gate and the angular speed of the rotating shaft of turbine, which is coupled with the rotor of alternator.
