  • Hybrid machine intelligence–based improved classifiers for multiple power signal disturbances

    This work presents a new technique for the identification of multiple power quality disturbances in industrial power systems. This new technique is developed based on change detection filter (CDF) and machine intelligence techniques like the local linear radial basis function neural network (LLRBFNN) and decision tree (DT). The proposed change detection filter has been designed in one cycle back ...

  • Wavelet feature–based modular neural network for detection and classification of power quality disturbances

    Disturbances such as voltage sag, swell, interruption and harmonics are very typical in a power system. Power quality monitoring should be capable of identifying these disturbances to initiate mitigation action and protect sensitive loads. This paper presents wavelet–neural network–based detection and classification of power quality disturbances. Wavelet transform has the ability to analyse ...

  • Implementation of ADALINE on a DSP for real-time measurement of current harmonics

    The objective of this paper is to implement an ADAptive LINear Element (ADALINE) for real-time measurement of harmonics in load current waveform using a digital signal processor (DSP). Harmonics cause many ill effects and reduce power quality. Harmonics are being measured by fast fourier transform (FFT) algorithm executed on a microprocessor or DSP system. The FFT algorithm implemented as per ...

  • A practical approach for beginning the process of technology roadmapping

    The study addresses the need for a robust yet practical technology roadmapping method that considers four major factors: input from consumers who use the technology; input from engineers who develop the technology; the technological gap between the roadmapped technology and competing technologies; and future changes in consumer preferences. The proposed method begins by using conjoint analysis of ...

  • Power quality indices measurement using the S-transform

    The paper presents the S-transform (ST) technique as a new tool for power quality indices measurement. A key feature of the ST is its accurate time-frequency (amplitude and phase) domain. With this feature, it is possible to redefine the calculation of the power quality indices in the ST domain based on the harmonic content of the signals. In addition, using the time information provided by this ...

  • Power quality evaluation in deregulated power system using matrix method

    Power quality has emerged as a challenging area in the context of deregulation, wherein electricity distribution buyers and sellers carry out mutually agreed-upon exchanges. A market for active power and reactive power is installed in many places as a result of a deregulation process. However, the power-quality-related market is in the developing stage. For a given site, the power quality ...

  • Harmonics impacts evaluation for single-phase traction load

    A planned electric utility substation supplying the single-phase traction load at New Haven, CT, USA was evaluated with regard to several important aspects of power quality. Harmonics: the trains are non-linear and time-varying loads. Harmonic current levels were measured at a nearby single-phase traction substation, which serves the same line as the future New Haven substation. These results ...

  • Characterisation of power quality disturbances based on wavelet transforms

    This paper presents a new technique for detecting and characterising disturbances in power systems based on wavelet transforms. The voltage signal under investigation is often corrupted by noises, therefore the voltage signal is first denoised using wavelet thresholding and then wavelet transform is applied to the denoised signal. Using the first-level detail wavelet coefficients, the voltage ...
