This paper presents robust decentralized power system stabilizer (PSS) design approaches for power system that can be expressed as minimizing a linear objective function under linear matrix inequality (LMI) in tandem with bilinear matrix inequality (BMI) constraints. In particular, the paper addresses two approaches with their practical implications for large power systems. These approaches are: i) based on the concept of interconnection method for designing robust decentralized dynamic output

Furthermore, the paper proposes algorithms to solve such optimization problems using sequential linear matrix inequality programming and general parameterized two-stage matrix inequalities optimization methods. It is also shown that the approaches presented in this paper can be used for designing realistic robust PSSs, notably socalled reduced-order robust PSSs design for power systems.
