Abstract

In Tied Uncompleted Parallel (TUP) line, locating faults via single-ended fault location algorithm leads to a considerable final error yielding unacceptable outage time. On the other hand, utilizing modern techniques such as Two-ended Protection method, in these temporarily transmission lines are not economically justified. This paper proposes a rearrangement method of tied uncompleted transmission lines to improve the protection coordination and fault location via single ended fault location. This novel method aims to reduce the error of fault location in the line without imposing an unnecessary financial burden or installing new devices. The proposed technique can locate a fault online, resulting less outage time and more reliability of the network. The simulation results, as well as those of field test, indicate the effectiveness of the proposed method in locating fault according to different constraints such as the protection coordination. This method has already been implemented in the Fars-Iran power system since 2018, and it has yielded outstanding results in practice. The technique is easy to execute and considerably reduces the fault location error and the outage time. Having derived the factors of fault location error, the rearrangement technique suggests a new arrangement based on the fault location error factor reduction. In this paper, it is approved that the proposed algorithm can effectively locate faults in uncompleted transmission lines via simulation results as well as practical experience.
