Harmonics and Phasor Estimation for a Distorted Power System Signal

Siddhartha, C V Srinivasa and Bharath, Gorja Chaitanya and Behera, Chinmayee (2015) Harmonics and Phasor Estimation for a Distorted Power System Signal. BTech thesis.



The controlling, operating and monitoring of electric devices has been possible because of the knowledge of power system parameters. The relay functionality in power systems is influenced by the two vital power system parameters which are frequency and harmonics. Hence in power systems, phasor estimation is of utmost importance. These computations not only facilitate realtime state estimation, but also improve protection schemes. However, in the presence of power frequency deviation, the phasor undergoes rotation in the complex plane. Interconnection of power grids and distributed generation systems becomes difficult because of this phenomenon. Hence, in this report different algorithms are studied and implemented for the estimation of phasor. The parameters estimated are limited to voltage amplitude and phase, change of frequency and rate of change of frequency. In this thesis, Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) technique and Recursive Least Square (RLS) algorithms are used to estimate the amplitude and phase for different harmonics present in a distorted power system signal. Simple DFT algorithm is used to estimate the phasor variation, change of frequency and rate of change of frequency when deviated from the nominal frequency.
