Abstract

A new numerical algorithm for recognizing arcing faults for the purpose of automatic reclosing is presented. The fault distance can also be calculated using this algorithm. The solution for both symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults is given. A simple empirical arc voltage model is obtained through a table of numerical values. By means of computer simulation and laboratory testing it is shown that the algorithm can be used as an effective tool in transmission and distribution system protection.
