In the interconnected power system network, instability problems are caused mainly by the low frequency oscillations of 0.2 to 2.5 Hz. The supplementary control signal in addition with AVR and high gain excitation systems are provided by means of Power System Stabilizer (PSS). Conventional power system stabilizers provide effective damping only on a particular operating point. But fuzzy based PSS provides good damping for a wide range of operating points. The bottlenecks faced in designing a

This design methodology is implemented on a Single Machine Infinite Bus (SMIB) system. Simulation results on SMIB show the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed PSS over a wide range of operating conditions and system configurations.
