A systematic method for analysing power system disturbances in the wavelet domain is described. Wavelet domain capabilities in detection, classification and measurements of various power system disturbances are presented. The distortion event is mapped into the wavelet domain and extracted from the measured signal. The duration of the distortion is measured in a noisy environment and its energy and RMS value evaluated. The proposed algorithm is applied to various power system disturbances.
