A measurement method for determining the direction of propagation of flicker and for tracing a flicker source


This paper describes a new and highly efficient measurement method (algorithm) that determines how flicker propagates throughout the network and also traces the dominant flicker source. The fundamental principle of the method is to use the fact that a flicker source produces an amplitude modulation in the voltage and current waveforms. The low frequency variations in voltage and current that cause flicker are retrieved in a demodulation and filtering process. By first multiplying the low frequency variations in voltage and current and then integrate, a new quantity, flicker power, is achieved. The sign and the magnitude of flicker power give the direction to the flicker source as well as tracing the dominating flicker source.Godkänd; 2005; 20081020 (ysko
