The aim is to exploit, in a joint method, the properties of CS and the Taylor- Fourier transform to identify the most relevant components of the signal, even under dynamic conditions, and to model them in the estimation procedure, thus limiting the impact of harmonic and interhamonic interferences.

Abstract

Synchrophasor measurements, performed by phasor measurement units (PMUs), are becoming increasingly important for power system network monitoring. Synchrophasor standards define test signals for verification of PMU compliance, and set acceptance limits in each test condition for two performance classes (P and M). Several PMU algorithms have been proposed to deal with steady-state and dynamic operating conditions identified by the standard. Research and discussion arising from design, implementation, testing and characterization of PMUs evidenced that some disturbances, such as interharmonic interfering signals, can seriously degrade synchrophasor measurement accuracy. In this paper, a new Compressive Sensing (CS) approach is introduced and applied to synchrophasor measurements using a Taylor-Fourier multifrequency model (CSTFM). The aim is to exploit, in a joint method, the properties of CS and the Taylor- Fourier transform to identify the most relevant components of the signal, even under dynamic conditions, and to model them in the estimation procedure, thus limiting the impact of harmonic and interhamonic interferences. The CSTFM approach is verified using composite tests derived from the test conditions of the synchrophasor standard and simulation results are presented to show its potentialities.
