Abstract : The article describes the travelling wave fault location algorithm for high voltage lines based on wavelet transform. The algorithm is implemented in a prototype and tested in the laboratory. The article presents the hardware and software part of a travelling wave fault locator, methodology and test results.

W artykule opisano algorytm falowej lokalizacji miejsca zwarcia w linii wysokiego napięcia (WN) oparty na przekształceniu falowym zaimplementowany w prototypie urządzenia, a następnie przetestowano w warunkach laboratoryjnych. Artykuł przedstawia opis części sprzętowej i programowej falowego lokalizatora, metodykę oraz wyniki testów.

Keywords : lokalizacja zwarcia, linia WN, przekształcenie falowe, fault location, HV line, wavelet transform,
