Abstract

In power transmission systems, locating faults is an essential technology. When a fault occurs on a transmission line, it will affect the whole power system. To find the fault location accurately and promptly is required to ensure the power supply. In this paper, the study of traveling wave theory, fault location method, Karrenbauer transform, and Wavelet transform is presented. This thesis focuses on single ended fault location method. The signal processing technique and evaluation study are presented. The MATLAB SimPowerSystem is used to test and simulate fault scenarios for evaluation studies.
