Underground Cable Fault Distance Locator – Observers

It’s useless for actual cable faults but it will probably lcoator with this “switchboard” of simulated faults. Print the raw values from the analogRead to see what you’re getting. The underground cable system is a common practice followed in many urban areas. MorganS if I understand your question. MorganS Shannon Member Posts: LarryD on Apr 20, It’s a 3 phase cable with 2km interval.

Try again from 2: Overview The objective of this project is to determine the distance of underground cable fault from base station in kilometers.

While a fault occurs for some reason, at that time the repairing process related to that particular cable is difficult due to not knowing faut exact location of the cable fault.

Been interested in electronics and amateur radio stuff ever since. Sorry about that i had to change the circuit extension. Negative supplies are less clear.

It makes it much more obvious when ground points down and positive supplies point up.

The code is almost useless without the circuit diagram. There’s a stray ground symbol right next to the 5V pullup on A0 and it’s not clear what’s going on there. It would be useful to know which it is. Includes complete hardware comprising of discrete components, modules, PCB, controller etc. Now experimenting with LoRa and long distance tracking.


Street Light that Glows on Detecting Vehicle I am new to the Arduino ide so can you please help me. The ide detected no underrgound during compilation I have attached the code and circuit diagram below Moderator: Tool kit-Multimeter, Soldering iron and program burner not included in the kit. The project uses the standard concept of Ohms law i.

Is this your schematic or is this the schematic faklt professor told you to use? My thoughts also Srnet. I prouect working on a project called Arduino based underground cable fault detection system. The objective of this project is to fauly the distance of underground cable fault from base station in kilometers.

OK, I see the schematic now. In case there is a short circuit Line to Groundthe voltage across series resistors changes accordingly, which is then fed to an ADC to develop precise digital data which the programmed microcontroller of family would display in kilometers. Does the LCD work with a simple sketch?

Arduino based underground cable fault distance locator

The fault occurring at a particular distance and the respective phase is displayed undergroubd a LCD interfaced to the microcontroller. A basic Arduino doesn’t have the timing precision required to measure down to km, but it doesn’t take a lot of components to do it. Extensive documentation for project execution including step-by-step instructions for Circuit building, Assembly procedure and Troubleshooting.

Would seem more appropriate to be looking for a ground fault.

Buyer Feedback Write a underrgound review There are no reviews yet. This section below seems to be very ambiguous. The system detects a voltage drop when the circuit is short-circuited on each phase and displays the exact location of the fault in kilometres else it should display no fault.


Easy to use, Self-explanatory kit. Hence the total distance on a phase is 8km from the circuit diagram.

Embedded C or Assembly. At every interval there’s a particular voltage drop which the Arduino analogRead pin detect, which is The resolution is poor but it’s possible to make out most of the details. Your email address will not be published. There have been projects posted on here using an Arduino to make a TDR. The proposed system is to find the exact location of the fault. Don’t send me technical questions via Private Message. dishance

Further this project can be enhanced by using capacitor in an ac circuit to measure the impedance diatance can even locate the open circuited cable, unlike the short circuited fault only using resistors in DC circuit as followed in the above proposed project.

Arduino based underground cable fault distance locator. MorganS on Apr 20, Try not to put symbols too close together.

Underground Cable Fault Distance Locator

Don’t draw supply and ground symbols on their sides. The last thing you did is where you should start looking. You need to post the circuit diagram. I designed cabble circuit in proteus and managed to get the code, however the system cannot detect and display the fault.
