Suggesting A New Method For Reaching An Ppropriate Passive Filter Design For Harmonic Reduction Based On Wavelet Transform

Regarding the increasing importance of power electronic devices application in industry and different harmonic problems, this research aims to present a new method based on wavelet transform, through which passive filters for harmonic reduction is designed. Furthermore, as a representation for harmonic sources, HVDC system, which has many applications in industry, is chosen. Despite other researches which have been done for harmonic detection, this time we know that 3rd,5th, 7th, 11th, 13th and 24th (as a high order harmonic) harmonics exist. But it is tried to use harmonic detection for reducing them through appropriate passive filter design. Finally, we show that the proposed method works better than traditional methods for passive filter design due to simplicity, and the capability of combining wavelet transform with computational methods. Results show that the proposed method can significantly reduce harmonics in several steps through decomposing a signal into its components. Also using a scalogram of signals before and after final passive filter design, confirms the authenticity of this method.
