This paper establishes an observer-based finite-time non-fragile load frequency control design using electric vehicles for power systems with modeling uncertainties and external disturbances. A state space representation of the addressed power systems together with dynamic interactions of electric vehicles is formulated. A full-order observer-based non-fragile controller is designed to ensure finite-time boundedness and satisfactory finite-time H∞ performance of the considered system. By constructing an augmented Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional and employing Wirtinger-based integral inequality, the required conditions are obtained in terms of linear matrix inequalities. The desired non-fragile load frequency control law is presented via the observer-based feedback approach. Simulations are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
