Abstract

Intelligent diagnosis of operation states of distribution grid is a prerequisite to the self-healing ability of a smart grid. In this paper, an improved support vector machine (SVM)-based cognitive diagnosis algorithm is proposed to cognize the current operation state of distribution grid by classifying the disturbance into different operation states. Based on the current measurement in distribution grid, wavelet-packet time entropy is developed to extract features of the operation states. Considering the rejection recognition of multi-class classification, an improved SVM multi-class classifier based on a kernel metric is constructed. To investigate the performance of the proposed cognitive diagnosis algorithm, simulations of real distribution grid cases are carried out in PSCAD–EMTDC. Compared with wavelet-packet energy and Fuzzy C-means, the simulation results demonstrate that the proposed cognitive diagnosis algorithm can achieve higher accuracy and more robust performance on different grids and fault conditions.
