A new numerical algorithm for blocking automatic reclosing on distribution lines is used for arc fault detection and fault distance calculations. The algorithm is based on the fundamental differential equations describing the transients on a transmission line before, during and after the fault occurrence, and on the application of the Least Error Squares Method for the unknown model parameter estimation. The arc voltage is modeled as a square wave shape in phase with the fault arc current.
