Low frequency oscillations are one of the major causes which reduce the capabilities of power system. Low frequency oscillations (LFO) have taken the attention of engineers therefore different techniques are introduced. This paper will help out to damp low frequency oscillations using one of the best and effective technique i.e. Power system stabilizer (PSS). Since among various techniques power system stabilizer has taken the attention by working effectively to damp low frequency harmonics. The model will is implemented using Simulink and the graphical results are analyzed and compared.  The system efficiency is improved up to 82%, by employing power system stabilizer.
