Development of Expert System for Fault Diagnosis in HVDC Systems Using Spectral Approach

  • Prem Kumar Kalra


This paper deals with system identification technique and development of expert system. The first part of the paper deals with system state identification and fault detection method, which in turn will be used to build the expert system. The second part of the paper deals with problems associated with development of expert system and some primary results obtained. The application of the expert system will ultimately be done for the fault diagnosis and to achieve better system recovery from the faults by adjusting controller parameters.
