This study presents our findings on the ferroresonance phenomenon for the Seyitomer-Isiklar part of the Electric Power System of 380 kV in Turkey. In this context, the power spectral density approach and Short-Time Fourier Transforms are applied to the voltage variations for phase R of the sample power network. The findings show that the ferroresonance event can be represented by the interharmonics between 50 and 250 Hz, as well as statistical properties. In addition, a histogram of the ferroresonance region shows a different characteristic from the overall data and the non-ferroresonance region. This different characteristic can be defined by an asymmetrical distribution characteristic, and its numerical measure is given by the "Noise to Signal Ratio" of 0.624.
