This study aims to develop and test a new accelerated method for analyzing low-frequency oscillations in power systems using phasor measurements. The proposed method is based on the use of mathematical statistics methods that do not require significant computing power and have high reliability. Changes in the structure of power generation and integration of control devices based on power electronics cause low-frequency oscillations of power system operation parameters that present a threat. These changes result in a reduction in the total inertia of power systems with the subsequent impact on the operation of automatic voltage regulators and power system stabilizers, the purpose of which is to damp low-frequency oscillations. We conduct a careful review of the existing methods for low-frequency oscillations analysis in power systems to identify the gaps in the literature and design a new method to address the issues. The proposed method is tested on real-life data that was obtained during a disturbance with a transient event. Estimation of the low-frequency oscillation parameters was carried out, and the potential threat posed by these phenomena was examined. The implementation of the proposed algorithm for analyzing low-frequency oscillations is done using the Matlab programming language. Evaluation of the proposed algorithm is performed on physical data obtained during real transient processes occurring at large power plants. © 2023 by the authors.
