The main objective of this paper is to improve the critical clearing time of the Steel Plant 35 MW Turbo generator. In order to enhance the transient behavior of the system, Power System Stabilizer is added so that proper damping is done. Damping intra area and inter area oscillations are critical to optimal power flow and stability on a system. Power system stabilizer is an effective damping device, as they provide auxiliary control signals to the excitation system of the generator. Transient stability analysis was carried out for the Steel plant. The three phase to ground and line to ground fault was simulated. The critical clearing time was found to be more when Power System Stabilizer was added and when Power System Stabilizer was not added the critical clearing time has considerably reduced.
