It must be mentioned that harmonic estimation is a nonlinear problem and using linear optimization algorithms for solving this problem reduces the convergence speed. Thus, BFO algorithm is used for initial estimation. In this paper, first, using little information and by applying BFO algorithm in an off-line procedure initial value for SGVFF algorithm is achieved and then SGVFF algorithm is gained in an on-line procedure. In the hybrid algorithm applied in this paper, amplitudes and phases are estimated simultaneously. Simulation results indicate that the proposed method has faster convergence speed, better performance and higher accuracy in a noisy system in comparison with recursive least squares variable forgetting factors algorithm (RLSVFF). This proves the superiority of the proposed method.</p><p class="Keyword"><strong>KEYWORDS:</strong>Â Power system harmonic; BFO algorithm; SGVFF method; RLSVFF method</p>}, number={1}, journal={IIUM Engineering Journal}, author={Mohammadzadeh, Ahmad and Sadati, Jalil and Rezaie, Behrooz}, year={2016}, month={Apr.}, pages={127–146} }
