##### Abstract:

Low frequency oscillations (LFO) are a frequent harmful phenomenon which increases the risk of instability for the power system. They limit the steady-state power transfer and change the operational system economics and security. The identification of LFO and solution to LFO problems with reference to power system stabilizer is carried out in this literature survey

##### Keywords:
