Abstract :

Electrical distribution is the largest portion of the power system network. Fault location in distribution system is very important to provide reliable and continuous supply to the end users. Faults on electrical distribution line causes transients waves, which travel at the speed of light and travel along the distribution line as a traveling wave. This paper provides logic of finding fault location in distribution system based on travelling wave principle and explains the different types of traveling wave fault locator method. MATLAB Simulink software is used to find the location of fault in distribution system.
