Power System Fault Diagnosis: A Wide Area Measurement Based Intelligent Approach is a comprehensive overview of the growing interests in efficient diagnosis of power system faults to reduce outage duration and revenue losses by expediting the restoration process.This book illustrates intelligent fault diagnosis schemes for power system networks, at both transmission and distribution levels, using data acquired from phasor measurement units. It presents the power grid modeling, fault modeling, feature extraction processes, and various fault diagnosis techniques, including artificial intelligence techniques, in steps. The book also incorporates uncertainty associated with line parameters, fault information (resistance and inception angle), load demand, renewable energy generation, and measurement noises.

Key Features

  • Provides step-by-step modeling of power system networks (distribution and transmission) and faults in MATLAB/SIMULINK and real-time digital simulator (RTDS) platforms
  • Presents feature extraction processes using advanced signal processing techniques (discrete wavelet and Stockwell transforms) and an easy-to-understand optimal feature selection method
  • Illustrates comprehensive results in the graphical and tabular formats that can be easily reproduced by beginners
  • Highlights various utility practices for fault location in transmission networks, distribution systems, and underground cables.


Postgraduate students of electrical power and energy systems. Professional researchers and academic practitioners. Industrial (power system) engineers. Power system and renewable energy research centers. Electric power utility companies. Professional and technical societies (IEEE, IET, and CIGRE)
