A new state-space type stabilizer to minimize low frequency oscillation is proposed. The proposed Power System Stabilizer (PSS) design not only damps the oscillations by moving the Eigen-values to desired left hand plane locations but additionally reduces the excitation of the mode itself through optimization of the left eigenvector of the poorly damped electro-mechanical mode. The stabilizer is implemented as a State-Space (SS) type controller which is optimized using a constrained optimization procedure. Two possible inputs, speed and electrical power are considered as candidate inputs to the stabilizers. The state-space design is also compared with one based on traditional lead-lag compensation. The SS type stabilizer with electrical power input is shown to perform better compared to any other type of PSS by minimizing low frequency oscillations.
