This paper presents a fault location technique for two-terminal multisection compound transmission lines, which combine overhead lines with underground power cables, using synchronized phasor measurements acquired by global positioning system (GPS) based phasor measurement units (PMUs) or digital relays with embedded PMU or by fault-on relay data synchronization algorithms. The technique is extended from a two-terminal fault location method with synchronized phasor measurements as inputs. A novel fault section selector is proposed to select the fault line section in advance. The proposed technique has the ability to locate a fault no matter where the fault is on overhead line or underground power cable. The adopted technique has a solid theoretical foundation and is direct and simple in terms of computational complexity. Both extensive simulation results and field test results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme. The proposed technique has already been implemented in the Taiwan power system since the year 2008. Up to the present, the proposed technique yields excellent performance in practice.
