The measurement of harmonics is essential in modern power systems in order to perform distortion level assessment, disturbances source detection and mitigation, etc. In this context, the role of Instrument Transformers (ITs) is crucial, as they are key elements in every power systems measuring instrument.

Abstract

The measurement of harmonics is essential in modern power systems in order to perform distortion level assessment, disturbances source detection and mitigation, etc. In this context, the role of Instrument Transformers (ITs) is crucial, as they are key elements in every power systems measuring instrument. However, inductive ITs, which are still the most widely used, suffer from both a filtering behavior due to their dynamics and from nonlinear effects due to their iron core. The target of this paper is to deeply analyze the performance of two digital signal processing techniques, recently proposed in literature, aimed at mitigating their nonlinear behavior: they are SINDICOMP and the compensation of harmonic distortion through polynomial modeling in the frequency domain. Their performance in improving the measurement of voltage harmonics are analyzed through numerical simulations, by adopting waveforms that can be typically encountered in power systems during normal operating conditions.
