AbstractFaults on power distribution systems can be prevented quickly and reliably by using solid-state devices to coordinate the optimum functioning and operation of the distribution system. This thesis describes specific systems and circuits designed for this purpose. Some parts employed in the isolation of faults are: sensors, quadrature amplitude modulators, fiber optic cables, programmable logic controllers, generators, band pass filters and silicon controlled rectifiers. Design information and test data are presented.
