A wavelet is compared with the signal and a coefficient is

defined. If the signal looks like the wavelet, the coefficient is

by a scalar product:

analyze the signal in a window, the wavelet time location.

Then there is no edge effect like in the Fourier analysis with a

window. In the Fourier analysis, the analyzing function has

an infinite time location. A wavelet has a finite time location

and if the signal is known in this location all the required

information is known.

If there is some similarity between the signal and the wavelet,

the product y/(t)s(t)will be high a long time, and C is high.

If there is no likeness between the wavelet and the signal, C

must be zero.

The C coefficients allow rebuilding the signal as a sum of

wavelets which weights are given by C.

is very important.

It is the so-called "acceptability" of the wavelet. If this

integral is not zero, it is possible to have coefficients different

from zero even if there is no likeness between the signal and

the wavelet.

Some wavelets which acceptability is not exactly zeroed can

be used. But it is required Ey/(f)dt is small enough.

Mathematicians explain the acceptability in a more

theoretical way, but when using wavelets a bad

"acceptability" leads to false results because coefficients are

not zeroed when there is no likeness between the signal and

the wavelet.

& A wavelet may be complex, then the coefficients C are

complex and the modulus and the argument may be

examined.

For example, a wavelet usually used in my team is a complex

one. The real part of this wavelet is the example I chose to

show figure 1. The mother wavelet is:

In the last exponential term, the constant 271 is not required,

but this allows showing easily the frequency.

This is not the best wavelet, because the wavelet quality

depends on the analyzed signal; but we often used it, with

success, for power network signals.

We use to call it the "Chaari wavelet". Chaari is the name of

the Ph'd student who proposed this wavelet and did the

programs allowing to use it. The z transform of this wavelet

is a polynomial and it is possible to do the analysis with a

recursive algorithm leading to very short computation time.

Our experience shows the Chaari wavelet is a good

compromise for power network signal analysis.

There is much information in the argument.

Fig. 4 shows the C coefficient argument when analyzing a

pure sinusoid with this wavelet. The sinusoid is a 100% one.

The analyzing wavelets are between 80 and 150 Hz. The

modulus and the argument of the coefficients are shown on

wavelet. The maximum is obtained for the 100 Hz analyzing

wavelet, as the analyzed function.

On the (4c) figure, it can be seen the time required to vary the

argument from -A to A is the period of the analyzed sinusoid

and not the period of the analyzing wavelet. This point is

important because it is possible to find the exact frequency of

the signal even if the analyzing wavelet is not chosen with

the right frequency.

But this property is not easy to use when the signal contains

several frequencies. Then the argument of the analyzing

wavelet is related to the closest frequency in the signal.

wavelet algorithm is not better than the Prony one.

Wavelets and Prony analysis are not usually used. But

algorithms to use them exist in Matlab toolboxes.

Sophisticated and network specialized algorithms can easily

be found.

Prony is a very powerful method, but only for linear behavior

of the studied system, and the programs are not easy to use.

Algorithms for wavelets are very robust and wavelets can be

used as easier as short time Fourier transforms. Watching a

wavelet analysis result can give an evaluation of Prony

coefficients.

It can be said that "easy to use" algorithms exist, allowing to

operate transients in protection or quality survey devices.
