Power Quality Disturbances Detection Based on EMD
The power quality (PQ) disturbance signals have the characteristics of short duration and strong randomness, and often form complex disturbances, which make the disturbance signals difficult to detect and identify. In this paper, EMD algorithm is introduced to decompose the PQ disturbance signals and calculate the intrinsic mode function (IMF) of the disturbance signals. Then, Hibert transform are performed for each IMF to obtain the characteristic information of the disturbance signal. EMD transform is used to detect the type, duration, frequency and amplitude of PQ disturbances. To verify the effectiveness of the algorithm, several kinds of PQ disturbance signals are simulated with transient harmonic, voltage interruption, voltage drop and voltage surge and complex disturbances. Experimental results show that the algorithm can accurately detect power quality interferences. This paper provides a new method for the detection of PQ disturbances and a new idea for the power management.
