Many countries around the world had suffered blackout incidents due to inter-area oscillations in recent decades. Analysis of system wide oscillatory stability requires a more effective engineering tool for modeling the wide area dynamics in power network. This paper proposes a data visualization based method for assessing the wide area power oscillatory stability. The phasor measurements are used and estimated to obtain more realtime system operating data by using a linear state estimator. The

Several visualization modules for displaying the phased angle dynamics are discussed and implemented. Test results of application of the proposed method to an inter-area oscillation event are reported. Sensitivity of the performance of the proposed visualization modules to different system sizes is illustrated.
