This paper investigates the critical parameters of power systems which affect the stability of the system. The analysis is conducted on both a single machine infinite bus (SMIB) system and a large multimachine system with dynamic loads. To further investigate the effects of dynamic loads on power system stability, the effectiveness of conventional as well as modern linear controllers is tested and compared with the variation of loads. The effectiveness is assessed based on the damping of the dominant mode and the analysis in this paper highlights the fact that the dynamic load has substantial effect on the damping of the system.
