Abstract

The effects of power quality (PQ) disturbances on power utilities and power customers are increasing day by day with widespread use of power electronics devices. These disturbances should be detected rapid and accurate. Wavelet transform (WT) has become a popular method to detect, classify and analyze various types of PQ disturbances in power systems. In this study, the fundamentals of WT, its distinctions from Fourier transform and the results of an extensive literature review of published studies are presented. The results of the literature review reveal that the detection of PQ disturbances using WT is a very powerful method and has been used in PQ mitigation devices effectively (that is, Custom Power, Flexible AC Transmission System, Flexible,Reliable and Intelligent Energy Delivery System).

 

Key words: Wavelet transform, power quality disturbances, literature review, feature extraction.
