In this paper, precise fault location in electrical traction network systems is discussed in the high-frequency domain. Based on the analysis of the equivalent impedance at the measurement terminal, the relationship between the fault distance and the frequency spectrum extreme points of the system impedance are derived. The exact fault location can be obtained from the relationship curves accordingly. MATLAB simulation experiments have been performed to verify the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
Keywords: fault location; high-frequency; equivalent impedance; traction line fault location; high-frequency; equivalent impedance; traction line
