Wavelets are a recently developed mathematical tool for signal analysis that are used as a kernel function in an integral transform. Wavelet analysis uses basis functions of a wide functional form. The basic concept in wave analysis is to select an appropriate wavelet function, called an analyzing wavelet and then perform an analysis using shifted and dilated versions of that wavelet. This article discusses the advantages of wavelet analysis, signal construction using wavelets, two wavelet techniques applied to power engineering, and computer implementation.
