Pre-locating faults with alternative method to arc reflection
While the share of installed cables without a jacket generally continues to decrease, the unjacketed cables that remain continue to age. As they do so, it is increasingly likely that a fault will develop on these cables. It can be particularly troublesome to locate faults on unjacketed cables as normal Time Domain Reflectometry, or radar, based fault location techniques often do not work, due to the corrosion of the neutral wires. While there is no guaranteed action that would result in locating the fault, this paper will outline some advanced methods, based on field experience, that can help when locating these types of faults. This paper was an article presented at NETA in 2017 and will discuss the Impulse Current method, which does not rely on the neutral wires being intact, in both a theoretical and practical light.

Measuring operational low voltage networks
Low voltage cable faults are often unstable, so they can only be located when the cable is conducting live voltage. Testing under these conditions is extremely hazardous, so separations filters, as well as constructional safety methods, should be employed at all times.

Low voltage network structures
Low voltage networks are a huge national investment, under daily pressure to give out power for hours at a time to a plethora of electrical appliances. It is therefore essential that their cables and transformers are tested often to prevent outage. To effectively test the components in low voltage networks, it’s important to know the different types of systems within them and how they are structured.

Intro to fault location in low voltage networks
Fault occurrences in medium voltage networks are usually covered by redundancy in the system which, with appropriate switching, usually ensures a relatively uninterrupted continuation of the supply for the customer. A lengthy wait until the fault can be corrected only results in the increased risk of a second failure in this area, creating a customer outage that cannot be restored by switching.

Examples of fault location
In branched low voltage networks, low-resistance faults, interruptions and large changes in impedance can only be located by comparing fault-free and defective cores.

Pre-location based on impulse reflection methods
The use of T-branches in low voltage networks makes the evaluation of TDR traces considerably more difficult. Only through comparative measurements of fault-free and defective wires can possible results be achieved. The test pulses of the Teleflex are partially reflected at the T-joint with a negative algebraic sign, while test pulses that continue are simultaneously reduced in amplitude. The amount of reflection depends on the impedance in the main line and the continuing line.

Methods of fault location in low voltage networks
There are multiple ways to find a cable fault in a low voltage network, but no one method works for all situations. It’s only by knowing the pros and cons of each method that you can determine the most effective one to use in any given scenario and pinpoint the fault in as little time as possible.
