In this paper, new time-frequency-based anomaly detection methodology is proposed for the condition monitoring of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) cable systems. The time-frequency-based anomaly detection methodology includes two indices, which are obtained via cross Wigner-Ville distribution and scattering parameter. For the validation of the proposed methodology, the methodology is applied to an ac 22.9-kV/50-MVA HTS cable system connected to the real power grid network. Furthermore, the changes in dielectric properties of the HTS cable system during the cooling process and the current imbalance failure are monitored. The proposed anomaly detection indices are shown to be able to detect the heat and the current imbalance caused by the malfunction of the joint box. For the application of the two validated indices, new anomaly detection procedure for HTS cable systems is also presented.
