This paper presents a modular yet integrated approach to the problem of fast fault detection and classification. Although the specific application example studied here is a power system, the method would be applicable to arbitrary dynamic systems. The approach is quite flexible in the sense that it can be model-based or model-free. In the model-free case, we emphasize the use of concepts from signal processing and wavelet theory to create fast and sensitive fault indicators. If a model is available then conventionally generated residuals can serve as fault indicators. The indicators can then be analyzed by standard statistical hypothesis testing or by artificial neural networks to create intelligent decision rules. After a detection, the fault indicator is processed by a Kohonen network to classify the fault. The approach described here is expected to be of wide applicability. Results of computer experiments with simulated faulty transmission lines are included
