This paper proposes a fault location algorithm for double-circuit transmission lines in the case of single line-to-ground fault. The proposed algorithm requires the voltage and current from the sending end of the transmission line. The fault distance is simply determined by solving a second order polynomial equation which is achieved directly by the analysis of the circuit. In order to testify the performance of the proposed algorithm, several other conventional approaches have been taken out to compare with it. The test results corroborate its superior effectiveness.
