Abstract


In this paper, a method for determination of the fault location in a distribution power line is presented. This method can be applied for single-ended power line and double-ended power lines. It is capable to determine the fault location upon its occurrence, based on the voltage and the current measurements available from the measuring equipment. This method depends on an algorithm that uses Gauss-Seidel iterative technique for solving the fault equation to calculate the fault location and the fault resistance. The proposed method was tested through Matlab simulation and achieved suitable results to be applied. Thus, it can be used to build a stand-alone fault locating equipment that helps the maintenance team to determine the location of the fault
