Under voltage load shedding (UVLS) and under frequency load shedding (UFLS) is plays vital role in the power system operation. As large disturbances are occur frequently in previous days. Generally these two methods are work independently from each other, and are not designed to integrated way to use their combined effect on load shedding. The reactive power hardly consider in load shedding process. To fill this gap, we froth put in this paper a new concentration about adaptive load shedding algorithm. The phasor measurement unit can gives both voltage and frequency information. The main concept of the new method is consideration of reactive power combined with active power in load shedding strategy. This method is gives information about the combined voltage and frequency stability issues is better than the independent approaches. The new method is tested on the IEEE 39-Bus system, in order to compare with other methods. By applying this new method to the system, that system will be back to new stable steady state that is better from the perspective of voltage and frequency and loadability.
