It is also possible that one of the ground fault devices, installed and functional at the time of construction, became defective at a later date.
Voltage variation indicating a single-phase to ground fault
The MME curve of the three-phase short-circuit fault (Figure 7) was similar to that of the single-phase ground fault. The data matrix adopted the node voltage matrix, which can also be expressed as (4).

Basically, the faults that occur in a network feeder are single line to ground fault with resistance [R.sub.f], double line to line and line to ground faults with arc resistance [R.sub.arc] and ground resistance [R.sub.f]-in different phases; that before presenting the fault detection algorithm, these two types of short circuit faults are modeled on the basis of figure 27.
The data base will be represented as follows: for phase A to ground fault the frequency spectrum pertaining to such faults is shown in Figures 8 and 9.
