The fault location algorithm based on wavelet transform was developed to locate the fault more accuracy after the operation of relay. The stationary wavelet transform(SWT) was introduced instead of conventional discrete wavelet transform(DWT) because SWT has redundancy properties which is more useful in noise signal processing. The algorithm was based on the correlation of wavelet coefficients at multi-scales. Fault location algorithm was tested by simulation on real power cable system. From these results, the fault can be located even in very difficult situations, such as at different inception angle and fault resistance.
