Improving power system stability is of great significance, since if the stability is lost, power collapse may occur in a large area and serious damages will be brought to national economy and the residents’ comforts. Not to mention earlier examples, only since 1960’s, large-area power collapses took place in many large power networks around the world and led to disastrous losses. This inevitably resulted in grave concern by each country on the stability and security of power systems. Over a long period of time unremitting researches have been carried out on the subject of power system stability.
