Abstract

In this paper, an expert system-based fault detection and classification scheme is developed for a laboratory prototype modelof TCSC compensated long transmission line (thyristor controlled series compensator). The equivalent model of laboratoryprototype system is simulated in MATLAB Simulink. An expert system based on fuzzy logic is developed by using threephasevoltage and current signals from single end measurements. Obtained voltage and current signals are pre-processedwith Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) to obtain the fundamental component of these signals. Further zero sequence currentand obtained fundamental voltage and current signals are used to develop a fuzzy inference system (FIS) for shunt faultdetection and classification task. There are three different FISs developed for three individual phases of the transmissionsystem and one FIS is developed for zero sequence current signal, which provides ground involvement information. Thecombined binary output of the developed four FISs provides fault classification. The performance of the developed FISs isrigorously tested with the variation of different fault parameters, and different location of the TCSC. The simulated resultsindicate that the proposed scheme performance is reliable in its zone of protection.
