PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project is intended to detect the location of fault in underground cable lines from the base station in kilometers using an Arduino board.This project uses the standard concept of Ohms law i.e., when a low DC voltage is applied at the feeder end through a series resistor to the Cable lines, then current would vary depending upon the location of fault in the short circuited cable.

In the urban areas, the electrical cable runs in undergrounds instead of overhead lines. Whenever the fault occurs in underground cable it is difficult to detect the exact location of the fault for process of repairing that particular cable. The proposed system finds the exact location of the fault.

This system uses anArduino board and a rectified power supply. Here the current sensing circuits made with combination of resistors are interfaced toArduino board with help of the internal ADC device for providing digital data to the microcontroller representing the cable length in KM’s. The fault creation is made by the set of switches.  The relays are controlled by the relay driver IC which is used for switching the power sequentially to all the lines. A 16x2 LCD display connected to the microcontroller to display the information.

In case of short circuit (Line to Ground), the voltage across series resistors changes accordingly, which is then fed to an ADC to develop precise digital data to a programmed Arduino board that further displays fault location in kilometers.

The project future can be implemented by using capacitor in an ac circuit to measure the impedance which can even locate the open circuited cable.

Q & A
Q:   Which microcontroller is used in this project?
A:  Arduino development board with ATMega328 microcontroller is used in this project.
Q:  How is the underground cable fault detection done?
A:  Underground cable fault detection is done using cable voltage drop as an input and resistance at every kilometer is the consideration.
Q:  How is the fault detected?
A:  Cable length represented by a set of resistors is subjected to a current flow through a series resistor, the voltage drop of which is used in the programming through in-built ADC to calculate the distance.
Q:  What are the types of fault created in this system?
A:  Three Line to Ground, three Line-to-Lines and line to line are the types of faults created in this system.
