Difference between Short circuit and overload

Short Circuit A short circuit occurs when two or more current-carrying conductors of different phases or different voltage levels or different terminal (in DC circuits) come in contact with each…

What are the different faults occurring in the overhead transmission lines?

What are the different faults occurring in the overhead transmission lines?

1.       Single line to ground fault.

2.       Line to line fault.

3.       Double line to ground fault.

4.       Line to line to line fault (Three phases are short-circuited)

5.       Three line to ground fault. (more…)

What is short circuit?

A short circuit is a situation in which two or more different lines (having different voltage levels/ different phase/ different terminals) come in contact and finally leads to the flow…
