    Abstract

    The paper investigates the possibility to use relative gain array (RGA) for power system small-disturbance stability analysis. The RGA has been successfully used in the past as steady state measure of interactions for multivariable, decentralized control in chemical and process engineering. The effectiveness of the RGA in identifying electromechanical modes and selecting the optimal location for placement of PSSs is compared with the conventional approach that uses transfer function residues, eigenvalues and participation factors. Two different multimachine power systems are used for the case studies. Limitations and advantages of the use of RGA in this purpose are clearly indicated in the paper.
