Continuous-Wavelet Transform for Fault Location in Distribution Power Networks: Definition of Mother Wavelets Inferred From Fault Originated Transients
version 1.0.1 (22.8 KB) by n.sene
The paper presents a fault location procedure for distribution networks based on the wavelet analysis of the fault-generated traveling waves. In particular, the proposed procedure implements the continuous wavelet analysis applied to the voltage waveforms recorded during the fault in correspondence of a network bus. In order to improve the wavelet analysis, an algorithm is proposed to build specific mother wavelets inferred from the fault-originated transient waveforms. The performance of the proposed algorithm are analyzed for the case of the IEEE 34-bus test distribution network and compared with those achieved by using the more traditional Morlet mother wavelet.
