A New Method of Voltage Flicker Detection for Hilbert Vibration Decomposition

Tiejun Cao


Hilbert Vibration Decomposition (HVD) is introduced to the voltage flicker analysis. When voltage flicker accompanies with high order harmonics, the instantaneous frequency of its analytic signal in principle consists of two different parts, power frequency and a rapidly varying asymmetrical oscillating part. The important property of the instantaneous frequency offers a direct way to estimate the power frequency using a low-pass filter and remove the high order harmonics without pre-treatment procedures. Corresponding voltage flicker envelope is estimated using synchronous detection. The HVD method does not involves basic functions that the wavelet transform method needs. It can also adaptively estimate the frequency and amplitude of every modulation frequency component. Simulation results prove that the proposed method could accurately detect voltage flicker with high order harmonics. It has higher calculation efficiency and detection precision than wavelet transform method. Experimental results show that the new algorithm is feasible and efficient.
