This paper presents a novel power quality disturbance detection and classification method of distribution power system based on complex wavelet transform (WT) and radial basis function (RBF) neural network. The complex supported orthogonal wavelets is employed to extract the feature information of disturbance signal, and finally proposed to explore several novel wavelet combined information (CI) to analyze the disturbance, superior to real wavelet analysis result. The feature obtained from WT coefficients are inputted into RBF network for power quality disturbance pattern classification. The power quality disturbance classification model is established and the synthesized method of recursive orthogonal least squares algorithm (ROLSA) with improved givens transform is used to fulfill the network structure parameters. By means of choosing enough samples to train the recognition model, the type of disturbance can be obtained when signal representing fault is inputted to the trained network. The simulation results demonstrate that the complex WT combined with RBF network are more sensitive to signal singularity, and found to be significant improvement for acquiring signal feature information.
