Research on the Existence of Genuine Inter-Harmonic Components Based on the Component Appearance Rate
The inter-harmonic spectrum of an electrical voltage or current from discrete Fourier transform can not only be caused by genuine inter-harmonic components, but can also be caused by other system disturbances. Therefore, the existence determination of genuine inter-harmonic s from the spectrum becomes the premise for further calculation of inter-harmonic parameters. From the theoretical perspective, this paper firstly analyzes and points out that the waveform difference among each cycle in the analysis window is the cause of the existence of inter-harmonic spectrum, and then presents a method to determine the existence of genuine inter-harmonic components, which is based on inter-harmonic time-frequency contour chart and the component appearance rate. The presented method firstly performs continuous discrete Fourier transform on the captured signal with certain duration and obtains the corresponding absolute time-frequency matrix, and then the genuine inter-harmonics can be distinguished based on the component appearance rate of the matrix and the criterion threshold. The method is easy to implement with clear principle, it can distinguish the genuine inter-harmonic s from the measured signal. The analysis on several data groups from real measurements verifies the effectiveness and the practicability of the method.
