I ran a simulation of IEEE 118-bus system in PSSE, and the bus fault was set to take place at t=0.2s and cleared at t=1.0s.

Something strange happened. The rotor angle started to become negative, what does it mean?

Cuz from what I know, the rotor angle is supposed to be between 0~90°.( maybe larger than 90° for some kinds of synchronous machines)

For the unstable condition, is the rotor angle not supposed to be beyond 90°and keep rising?

If relative angles are used in PSSE, the difference between the rotor angle and the reference angle is shown. The reference angle may be a single machine or the average angle for all machines in the system. Negative rotor angles for some machines are normal when using relative angles.
