Abstract: For control of an electric generator, it is desirable to approximate the remote part of the power system by a low order model, whose parameters can be estimated from measurements. The proposed model for the remote system consists of a large synchronous machine and a random varying load to account for the dynamic behaviour and for the small fluctuations that are always present. The maximum likelihood algorithm is a good method for parameter estimation of a noisy system. It can even be used for estimation from measurements alone, without applied disturbance, which could be of great advantage in a power system. The algorithm is derived in a form suitable for efficient digital processing of sampled measurements from a linear continuous system with physical parameters. The performance of the algorithm is tested by computer simulation of a simplified model for several cases of deterministic and/or stochastic input. It is demonstrated, that good estimates can be found from the output of a disturbed system when no intentional input is applied.
