This paper describes the application of the abrupt change detection technologies to detect the abrupt changes in the signals recorded during disturbances in the electrical power network of South Africa for disturbance analysis and relay performance monitoring. The aim is to estimate the time instants of the changes in the signal model parameters during the prefault condition, after initiation of fault, after the circuit-breaker opening and autoreclosure, etc. After these event-specific segmentations, the synchronization of the different digital fault recorder recordings are done based on the fault inception timings. The synchronized signals are segmented again. This synchronized segmentation is the first step toward automatic disturbance recognition, facilitating further complex feature vector analysis and pattern recognition. Besides, the synchronized, segmented recordings can be directly used to analyze certain kinds of disturbances and monitor the relay performance. This paper presents many practical examples from the power network in South Africa
