Fault location on transmission and distribution lines

Fault location is one of the most critical issues of utilities and electrical companies in today's competitive market. Analysis of fault location not only ensures the continuous power supply but also help to study properties and weakness of particular power network. In the following paper, I have discussed various traditional and new approaches to fault location. Also I have done Matlab simulation to prove the accuracy of the algorithm. I have used fundamental frequency component of fault voltage and current for the analysis.
