Power quality has become a greater concern nowadays. The increasing number of power electronics equipment contributes to the poor quality of electrical power supply. The power quality signals will affect manufacturing process, malfunction of equipment and economic losses. This paper presents the verification analysis of power quality signals classification system. The developed system is based on linear time-frequency distribution (TFD) which is spectrogram that represents the signals jointly in time-frequency representation (TFR). The TFD is very appropriate to analyze power quality signals that have magnitude and frequency variations. Parameters of the signal such as root mean square (RMS) and fundamental RMS, total waveform distortion (TWD), total harmonic distortion (THD) and total non-harmonic distortion (TnHD) of voltage signal are estimated from the TFR to identify the characteristics of the signal. Then, the signal characteristics are used as input for signal classifier to classify power quality signals. In addition, standard power line measurements are also calculated from voltage and current such as RMS and fundamental RMS voltage and current, real power, apparent power, reactive power, frequency and power factor. The power quality signals focused are swell, sag, interruption, harmonic, interharmonic, and transient based on IEEE Std. 1159-2009. The power quality analysis has been tested using a set of data and the results show that, the spectrogram gives high accuracy measurement of signal characteristics. However, the system offers lower accuracy compare to simulation due to the limitation of the system.
