Abstract

Fault location is an important topic within electric power systems, as accurate fault location techniques will improve the reliability of the system and reduce downtime caused by outages. This paper explores fault location in distribution systems with distributed generation using the traveling wave fault location method. The single-ended and double-ended traveling wave methods are evaluated using a single-circuit distribution system which is modeled using MATLAB SIMULINK. The results are compared using a basis of signals and bus pairs across fault types, sampling rates and fault resistances.
