Abstract

Renewable energy sources (RESs) in any power system can participate in removing the harmonics from the line voltage, but the RESs need to estimate these harmonics first. In this paper, an efficient method to estimate grid harmonics is proposed to be used by single-phase RESs. The proposed method provides accurate estimation for the harmonics while it has lower computation complexity than the other existing methods. To make the harmonic estimation process fast and accurate, the harmonics in the sampled grid voltage is eliminated before passing it to the phase-locked-loop block used for estimating the grid phase. Another application of the proposed method is to transform single-phase voltage or current from the stationary reference frame into the dq rotating reference frame. In this application, the use of the proposed method eliminates the need of generating fictitious voltage or current waveforms orthogonal to the measured quantities. The elimination of need to generate fictitious waveforms speeds up the transformation transients and reduces the operations to less than half of those required by traditional methods. Simulation and experimental results verified that the algorithm achieves fast and accurate harmonic estimation of highly distorted grid voltage.
