Underground Cable Fault Detection using Arduino

  title={Underground Cable Fault Detection using Arduino},
  author={T. Nandhini and J. Shalini and T. Sai Sangeeetha and D Gnanaprakasam},
The project is intended to detect the location of fault in underground cable lines from the base station to exact location in kilometers using an Arduino micro controller kit. In the urban areas, the electrical cab le runs in undergrounds instead of overhead line s. Whenever the fault occurs in underground cable it is difficult to detect the exact location of the fault for process of repairing that particular cable. The proposed system finds the exact location of the fault. This system uses an…
