A speedy and accurate transient stability assessment (TSA) is gained by employing efficient machine learning- and statistics-based (MLST) algorithms on transient nonlinear time series space. In the MLST’s world, the feature selection process by forming compacted optimal transient feature space (COTFS) from raw high dimensional transient data can pave the way for high-performance TSA. Hence, designing a comprehensive feature selection scheme (FSS) that populates COTFS with the relevant-discriminative transient features (RDTFs) is an urgent need. This work aims to introduce twin hybrid FSS (THFSS) to select RDTFs from transient 28-variate time series data. Each fold of THFSS comprises filter-wrapper mechanisms. The conditional relevancy rate (CRR) is based on mutual information (MI) and entropy calculations are considered as the filter method, and incremental wrapper subset selection (IWSS) and IWSS with replacement (IWSSr) formed by kernelized support vector machine (SVM) and twin SVM (TWSVM) are used as wrapper ones. After exerting THFSS on transient univariates, RDTFs are entered into the cross-validation-based train-test procedure for evaluating their efficiency in TSA. The results manifested that THFSS-based RDTFs have a prediction accuracy of 98.87 % and a processing time of 102.653 milliseconds for
