An Industrially useful means for decomposing and differentiation of harmonics components of periodic waveforms

This paper presents efficient methods to estimate the spectral content of (noisy) periodic waveforms that are common in industrial processes. The techniques presented, which are based on the recursive discrete Fourier transform, are especially useful in computing high-order derivatives of such waveforms. Unlike conventional differentiating techniques, the methods presented differentiate in the frequency domain and thus are quite immune to uncorrelated measurement noise. This paper also shows the theoretical relationship between the proposed methods and those of well-known resonant filters.


A Kalman Filter Based Approach for Light Flicker Evaluation of Power Systems
Kose, Neslihan; Salor, Ozgul; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2009-01-01)
In this paper, a Kalman filtering based approach is proposed to measure the light flicker of the electricity transmission systems. Analytical expressions of the instantaneous light flicker sensation are obtained beginning from a voltage waveform and these expressions are used to obtain a flicker estimation method based on the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) flickermeter. In the proposed method, the frequency domain components of the waveform are obtained by Kalman filtering and these compone...
Numerical Investigation of Nano-Cavities for Optimal Power Absorption in Solar Cells
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Topcuoglu, Ulas; Tuygar, Emre; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-06-01)
We present a numerical study of nano-cavities used in solar cells for energy harvesting, by employing surface integral equations based on Maxwell's equations in the frequency domain and an efficient solver based on the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). With the three-dimensional modeling of surfaces, we obtain accurate results to evaluate the performances of different structures for improved power absorption in solar cells. This paper includes a brief description of the developed solver and initi...
A neuro-fuzzy MAR algorithm for temporal rule-based systems
Sisman, NA; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Akman, V (1999-08-04)
This paper introduces a new neuro-fuzzy model for constructing a knowledge base of temporal fuzzy rules obtained by the Multivariate Autoregressive (MAR) algorithm. The model described contains two main parts, one for fuzzy-rule extraction and one for the storage of extracted rules. The fuzzy rules are obtained from time series data using the MAR algorithm. Time-series analysis basically deals with tabular data. It interprets the data obtained for making inferences about future behavior of the variables. Fu...
Determination of harmonic current contributions based on robust state estimation
Sezgin, Erhan; Göl, Murat; Salor, Ozgul (2018-01-01)
In this paper, a state estimation based method is proposed to determine harmonic current contributions of plants supplied from a point of common coupling (PCC). This work mainly aims to reduce gross error of capacitive voltage transformer (CVT) measurements at harmonic frequencies using robust weighted least absolute value (WLAV) state estimation method, which provides the optimum state estimates for harmonic voltages in the presence of a redundant enough measurement set. Estimated harmonic voltages are the...
Advanced Active Power Filter to Improve Power Quality
Gurguiatu, Gelu; Balanuta, Ciprian; Rosu, Emil; Munteanu, Toader; Dumitrescu, Mariana; Raducan, Elena (2011-09-10)
This paper presents a three-phase Active Power Filter (APF) to improve grid power quality. Starting from indirect control strategy which was used only for three legs - three wires it is proposed in this paper to be used a bridge with three legs - four wire. The new control strategy it was named extended indirect control strategy. The extension consists in passing from the control of a three wire active power filter to the control of a four wire active power filter. The proposed active power filter can compe...
