This study proposes a Load Frequency Control (LFC) approach for Multi-Microgrids (MMGs) using the World Cup Optimization (WCO) algorithm. The approach aims to improve the frequency regulation of MMGs while maintaining the power balance between generation and load. The LFC system consists of a Proportional-Integral (PI) controller and a Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller, which are tuned using the WCO algorithm to optimize the controller parameters. The effectiveness of the proposed approach was evaluated using a test system comprising of two interconnected MMGs. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed LFC approach using the WCO outperforms other optimization algorithms and effectively maintains the frequency within acceptable limits during various load variations and disturbances. Additionally, the proposed approach ensures power balance among the MMGs, leading to a stable operation of the entire power system.
