- This paper presents a discrete wavelet transform approach for determining the beginning and end times of voltage sags. Firstly, investigations in the use of some typical mother wavelets, namely Daubechies, Symlets, Coiflets and Biorthogonal are carried out and the most appropriate mother wavelet is selected. The proposed technique is based on utilizing the maximum value of D1 (at scale 1) coefficients in multiresolution analysis (MRA) based on the discrete wavelet transform. The results are compared with other methods for determining voltage sag duration, such as the Root Mean Square (RMS) voltage and Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT) methods. It is shown that the voltage sag detection technique based on the wavelet transform is a satisfactory and reliable method for detecting voltage sags in power quality disturbance analysis.
