This paper proposes evaluation of Restoration Indices for the Load-Frequency Control assessment of a Two-Area Two Unit Interconnected Power System (TATURIPS) coordinated with Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) units. As Proportional Integral (PI) type controller is still widely used for the solution of the Load Frequency Control (LFC) problem, in this paper also PI controllers are used. The optimal gain tuning of PI controllers for various case studies for the LFC problem is proposed and obtained using Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm. These controllers are designed and implemented in a TATURIPS coordinated without and with SMES units. The system was simulated and the frequency deviations, tie-line power deviation, control input deviations and additional mechanical power generation required for step load disturbance of 0.01 p.u.MW and 0.04 p.u.MW without and with outage condition in area-1 are presented. The simulation results and the evaluation of the Restoration Indices shows that the TATURIPS coordinated with SMES units ensures a better transient and steady state response and improved Restoration Indices than that of TATURIPS without SMES Units.
