    Abstract: This paper proposes a new technique based on S-transform time-frequency analysis and Fuzzy expert system for classifying power quality (PQ) disturbances. The S-transform is a new time frequency analysis method. It has the features of both continuous wavelet transform (CWT) and short time Fourier transform (STFT). Through S-transform time-frequency ...

    Abstract: The penetration of nonlinear loads on power systems increases the harmonics that can cause detrimental problems to power systems such as an increase in voltage distortion, equipment failure, system resonance, increase system losses and decrease system efficiency. Many factors affect the harmonics produced by nonlinear loads. Hence, the aim of this ... Show More
