Power system stabilizers (PSSs) are the most well known and efficient devices to damp the power system oscillations caused by interruptions. Low frequency oscillation problems are very difficult to solve because power systems are very large, complex and geographically distributed. Hence, it is necessary to employ most efficient optimization methods to take full advantages in simplifying the problem and its implementation. These optimization methodologies and techniques are widely diverse and have been the subject of ongoing enhancements over the years. This paper presents a survey of literature on the various optimization methods applied to solve the PSS problems.
