This paper is used to investigate a novel design of lead-lag type power system stabilizers for a multi-machine power system. In the design procedures, the minimum damping constants requirements of all of electromechanical modes can be designated and several typical operating conditions can be considered at the same time. The hybrid differential evolution (HDE) method is used to tune the parameters of power system stabilizers. In the design procedures, a region in the left half complex plane bounded by a line with a given negative real value is given. Thus, at the final step of the HDE, all of electromechanical modes should be moved to or near this region to have a smaller objective function value. In this paper, the objective function is chosen to let the design results have small real parts of electromechanical modes. Since the speed deviations are used as the feedback signals of the power system stabilizers, the stabilizers could be implemented easily. Because several operating conditions are considered in the design of stabilizer parameter values, the damping forces are ensured effective in those operating conditions simultaneously. Nonlinear system time domain simulations are used to demonstrate the design results.
