Two-inputs adaptive IEEE multi-bands power system stabilizer (PSS4B) was developed for oscillations damping control in power systems. Two supplementary loops based on model reference (MR) adaptive control were added to the typical PSS4B design. The MR has the same loops’ parameters of the typical PSS4B, and hence, avoiding a complex tuning process. The proposed PSS has a self-tuning gain reduction block to avoid any negative impact due to the high gains value during the disturbance time. The proposed PSS was applied on the four-machine benchmark power system. To evaluate the robustness of the proposed PSS, it was tested in comparison with the Delta W PSS, one-input multi-bands PSS4B (1iMB) and two-inputs multi-bands PSS4B (2iMB) stabilizers. The integration of the proposed PSS was demonstrating using different study cases. These cases consider the small-signal stability (SSS), large-signal stability (LSS) and the coordination test for the local and inter-area excited power modes. The proposed PSS demonstrated robust and superior responses in all cases.
