Abstract:

This paper presents an accurate fault location scheme for transmission systems consisting of an overhead line in combination with an underground power cable. The algorithm requires phasor measurements data from one end of the transmission line and the synchronized measurements at the most far end of the power cable. Fault location is derived using distributed line model, modal transformation theory and Discrete
Fourier Transform. The technique can be used on-line or off-line using the data stored in the digital transient recording apparatus. The proposed scheme has the ability to locate the fault whether it is in the overhead line or in the underground power cable. Extensive simulation studies carried out using MATLAB show that the proposed scheme provides a high accuracy in fault location under various system and fault conditions.
