Detection and Classification of Voltage Swells Using Wavelet Transforms

Anoop Mathew, N. O. Gunasekar, D. Bensiker Raja Singh, and S. Uma Mahaswaran

Abstract—Through this paper a novel technique for detecting and characterizing disturbances in power systems based on wavelet transforms is proposed. The voltage signal under investigation is often corrupted by noises, therefore the signal is first de-noised and then wavelet transform is applied. Using the first detail wavelet coefficients, voltage disturbance is detected and its duration is determined. The combination of an adaptive prediction filter based sub-band decomposition structure with a rule based histogram analysis block produce successful detection and classification results on our real life power system transient data. In this paper, voltage swell is considered for comparing both approaches. Proposed scheme is implemented using MATLAB, Simulink, DSP and Wavelet toolboxes.
