Iterative Matrix Pencil Method for Power System Modal Analysis

AbstractThis paper introduces a modal analysis approach termed as the Iterative Matrix Pencil method. It uses the Matrix Pencil Method as the primary tool for mode identification, and adds to it by utilizing the concept of a cost function in order to reduce the number of signals needed to identify the modes for a large system. The method is tested for a variety of large synthetic power grids in this paper, with the cost function being reported to measure accuracy. A sensitivity analysis is also considered, showing how this new method behaves when adjusting the two primary user-based inputs; the number of iterations, and the SVD threshold.
