Diagnosing a power quality disturbance means identifying the type and cause of the disturbance. Fast diagnosis of power quality disturbances is important so as to assist network operators in performing counter measures and implementing suitable power quality mitigation actions. In this study a novel method for performing power quality diagnosis is presented by using the S-transform and rule based classification techniques. The proposed power quality diagnosis method was evaluated for its functionality in detecting the type of short duration voltage disturbances and identifying the cause of the disturbances which may be due to permanent or non permanent faults. Based on the results, this new method has the potential to be used in the existing real time power quality monitoring system in Malaysia to expedite the diagnosis on the recorded voltage disturbances.
