There is an emerging need to prioritize remedial frequency control measures closer to the source of an imbalance event. This approach, referred to herein as responsibilization, is challenging to achieve within the conventional operating times of Primary Frequency Control (PFC) and therefore novel methods are sought. In this letter, a novel decentralized PFC is proposed which relies on transient phase offset to achieve fast responsibilization autonomously. The effectiveness of the proposed control is demonstrated by real-time simulations and its stability assessed by small-signal analysis. This development will lead to increased system resilience during imbalance events.
