Paper Abstract

The switching operation of nonlinear electrical loads contributes greatly to harmonic distortion in power systems. Forecasting harmonic distortion levels enables power system operators to respond with the proper corrective action, thereby enhancing system manageability. Neural networks have proved to be viable alternatives in several modeling and prediction applications, including systems in which the dynamics are chaotic. In this paper, power system harmonics are predicted using Radial Basis Function networks. This approach has certain advantages over other conventional schemes, including the potential to track the harmonics in the time-varying power system environment.
