Disruption of the electric power system always results in instability. These disturbances can be in the form of network breaks (transients) or load changes (dynamic). Changes in load that occur suddenly and periodically cannot be responded well by the generator so that it can affect the dynamic stability of the system. This causes the occurrence of frequency oscillations in the generator. A poor response can cause frequency oscillations for a long period. This will result in a reduction in the available power transfer power. In a multi-machine power system, all the machines work in synchrony, so the generator must operate at the same frequency. Therefore, disturbances that arise will have a direct impact on changes in electrical power. In addition, changes in electrical power will have an impact on mechanical power. The difference in response speed between a fast electrical power response and a slower mechanical power response will result in instability. As a result of these differences, the system oscillates. The addition of the excitation circuit gain is less able to stabilize the system. To solve the problem, additional signal changes are required. The additional signal is generated by the Dual Input Power System Stabilizer (DIPSS) setting using the Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) method. Three generator nine bus is used as the test system of this paper. Time domain simulation is used to investigate the efficacy of the proposed method. From the simulation results it is found that the proposed method is superior compared to the other scenarios. This indicated by the overshoot and the settling time of three generator are smaller compared to the other scenarios.
