Identifying inter-area oscillations can be a challenge for interconnected grids. Two identifier algorithms (FBMSWA and TBR-EMD) proposed to detect these oscillations are comparatively tested in this research. FBMSWA is implemented with T-STATCOM to damp out 0.15 Hz low-frequency inter-area oscillation after interconnection Turkey with ENTSO-E. Developed TBR-EMD algorithm has certain achievements, e.g. admissible for real time, handling intermittency problem of EMD, proved by real data.
