A resilient scheme for a flexible smart grid using transformation optimization towards sustainable energy

D. Vijayakumar, S. Gopalakrishnan


The transmission line is the most vulnerable element of any electrical power system due to its large physical dimension. This paper focused on identification of simple power system fault using wavelet based analysis of transmission line parameter disturbances for quick and reliable operation of protection schemes. The fault detection is disbursed by the assay of the detail coefficients activity of appearance currents. Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) examination of the transient aggravation created as an aftereffect of event shortcomings is performed. The result shows that the proposed method detects the fault very quickly and accurately. Simulation results are presented showing the selection of proper threshold value for fault detection. An embedded intelligence is inserted into the power-electronics to facilitate the reconfiguration of the system, and thereby ensuring security
