Abstract : Estimation of electromechanical mode properties is crucial in modern power systems for providing the operators with an adequate indication of the stress in the system. Measurement-based approaches use signal processing algorithms for mode identification and parameter estimation. This paper presents a novel framework for the assessment of low-frequency oscillation modes using real-world synchrophasor data with minimum computational effort. A nonstationary approach known as Time-Varying Filter based Empirical Mode Decomposition (TVF-EMD) technique is used to identify the dominant low-frequency modes present in the ambient PMU data. The combination of TVF-EMD with Teager Kaiser Energy Operator (TKEO) precisely estimates the instantaneous mode parameters, such as frequency, amplitude, and damping ratio. The efficacy of the proposed approach is demonstrated by applying it in a synthetic signal, simulated data of a standard IEEE test system, and in real-world PMU data of the Indian power grid. The proposed method is compared with the existing methodologies and the observations reveal that the proposed method has robust performance in estimating the instantaneous mode features in the power system with less computational complexities.
