Power system analytical tools differ in their components modelling. The differences affect electromechanical modes damping. This paper investigates the effect of including rotor speed deviation in stator voltage calculation -with the stator transients neglected- and the modelling of turbine output, on electromechanical mode damping of a single machine infinite bus system. We use a sixth order generator model with different excitation control configurations. We analyse results obtained with EUROSTAG and compare these with results obtained with three other industrial-grade tools. Our results show that: (i) if rotor speed deviation is included in the stator voltage calculation, the results are more conservative than those obtained if speed deviation is neglected. (ii) if the turbine model output is torque, the results are more conservative than those obtained if the output model is power.
