Underground Cable Fault Distance Locator

Been interested in locatorr and amateur radio stuff ever since. The last thing you did is where you should start looking. The underground cable system is a common practice followed in many urban areas.

Embedded C or Assembly. MorganS Shannon Member Posts: 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. The project uses the standard concept of Ohms law i. Overview The objective of this project is to determine the distance of underground cable fault from base station in kilometers.

Try again from 2: It’s useless for actual cable fajlt but it will probably work with this “switchboard” of simulated faults. Don’t draw supply and ground symbols on their sides.

Easy to use, Self-explanatory kit. Sorry about that i had to change the circuit extension. Hence the total distance on a phase is 8km from the circuit diagram. Arduino based underground cable fault distance locator.


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.

Underground Cable Fault Distance Locator – Observers

I locatkr working on a project called Arduino based underground cable fault detection system. It would be useful to know which it is. 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. MorganS if I understand your question. You need to post the circuit diagram. Now experimenting with LoRa and long distance tracking.

Arduino based underground cable fault distance locator

The objective of this project is to determine the distance of underground cable fault from base station in kilometers. OK, I see the schematic now. Software Requirements Keil compiler Languages: At every interval there’s a particular voltage drop which the Arduino analogRead pin detect, which is 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.

There have been projects posted on here using an Arduino to make a TDR. I am new to the Arduino ide so can you please help me. Street Light that Glows on Detecting Vehicle The fault occurring at a particular distance and the respective phase is displayed on a LCD interfaced to the microcontroller. Your email address will not be published. Buyer Feedback Write a new review There are no reviews yet.


My thoughts also Srnet. Don’t send me technical questions via Private Message. It’s a 3 fauot cable with 2km interval. LarryD on Apr 20, Tool kit-Multimeter, Soldering iron and program burner not included in the kit. MorganS on Apr 20, 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. The proposed system is to find the exact location of the fault. Does the LCD work with a simple fistance Includes complete hardware comprising of discrete components, modules, PCB, controller etc.

Is this your schematic or is this the schematic your professor told you to use? Try not to put symbols too close together. Further this project can be enhanced by using capacitor in an ac circuit to measure the impedance which 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.

Print cale raw values from the analogRead to see what you’re getting. I designed the circuit in proteus and managed to get the code, however the system cannot detect and display the fault. Negative supplies are less clear.

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