The measured values of current harmonics at a staged high-impedance ground fault on sandy soil are presented. The measured low-frequency spectrum is compared with current harmonics recorded continuously for one week at the substation. This comparison was carried out to determine to what extent 120 Hz and 180 Hz components can be used to help detect a high-impedance fault. The field measurements are supported by a simple theoretical model and laboratory measurements. It is concluded that, for the studied feeder, detection of high-impedance arcing faults may be possible by monitoring of the second-harmonic current
