Spectral analysis applied to synchrophasor data can provide valuable information about lightly damped low-frequency modes in power systems. This paper demonstrates application of two non-parametric spectral estimators focusing on mode frequency estimation. The first one is the well-known Welch spectral estimator whereas the application of Multitaper method is proposed here. In addition, the paper discusses mode estimator tuning procedures and the estimators' performances in the presence of 'forced' oscillations. The validity of the proposed application of the non-parametric estimators and tuning procedures is verified through both simulated data and PMU data originating from the high-voltage grid of the Nordic power system. Special attention is given to the analysis of the behaviour of different low frequency modes present in the Nordic grid, including that of forced oscillations.
