Many methods for fault location using synchronized phasor measurement have been reported in literature. Most of these methods use voltage and current measurements at one or both ends of a transmission line. Accuracy of current measurement is limited by the accuracy of the current transformers (CT) used. This paper describes a fault-location method for transmission lines using only synchronized voltage measurements at both ends of the line, eliminating the inherent error due to CT. The method can be applied to transposed and untransposed lines. The method is tested using results from a steady state fault-analysis program and EMTP.
