Fault-Induced Transient Analysis for Real-Time Fault Detection and Location in Transmission Lines

  title={Fault-Induced Transient Analysis for Real-Time Fault Detection and Location in Transmission Lines},
  author={Fl{\'a}vio Bezerra Costa and Benemar Alencar Souza},
The real-time detection of the fault-induced tran- sients on both transmission line terminals can allow the direc- tional protection system to detect and locate faults in agreement with a high-speed fault clearance. This paper presents a wavelet- based method for real-time detection of the fault-induced tran- sients. The method can detect whether the fault is within the protected line and estimate the fault location through a commu- nication link at both line terminals. The wavelet coefficients…
