Abstract

In this paper, a data-driven approach has been used to identify and categorize fault in the electrical power system. The proposed methodology involves efficient analysis of the data with feature vectors including the area or zone of the bus. The training is done on machine learning models to classify and identify the location of the fault. Three-phase, line to ground, line-to-line to ground, line-to-line, loss of line with no fault and loss of load at bus faults are simulated to generate labeled data with type of fault and location of fault. Two algorithms have been proposed to choose the measurements selection strategy, and results have been stated. The proposed methodology proves its validity for identification of the fault without necessary measurement of the voltage of each node. The proposed approach works with a minimum number of buses required to be as few as 5-7% of the measured buses. The accuracy, capabilities, and limitations of the proposed algorithm are verified on IEEE 68 bus model. The highest classification accuracy attained on one of the test cases is 91%.
