This paper acquaints a strategy with perceive the region of the normal fault on the power line for fast and strong activity of confirmation designs. The model is made in MATLAB to deliver the important segment of the transient parameters at a similar period. Each cycle of waveform, covers before blame and after blame information is inaccessible for examination. The DWT is used for data pre-preparing. MATLAB writing computer programs is used to replicate uncommon. Working and blame conditions on high voltage transmission line, to be particular LG blame, LL blame, LLG and LLLG cut off.
