The effectiveness of the inferential control scheme based on robust fractional-order proportional integral (FOPI) controller is presented for automatic voltage regulation (AVR) applications. The method uses two degree of freedom (2DOF) in FOPI scheme, which is tuned with the whale optimization algorithm (WOA). Actually, any AVR needs to keep the reactive power of synchronous generator at demand level, stable voltage and frequency of the electrical power supplies. In this study, the 2DOF FOPI controller is proposed to deviate away from the standard integer order, to show the superiority of extra degree of freedom in both structure and controller. To improve the AVR performance, a new performance measure is proposed for the parameter tuning. The method acquires the significant robustness in parameter perturbation and disturbance interruptions. It is observed in the step response quality that the overshoot and settling time can be reduced to approximately by half than the recently published scheme. The various analyses are shown to accept the dominance of the proposed controller in terms of robustness.
