PEREZ-HERNANDEZ, LUCAS; PEREZ-LONDONO, SANDRA and MORA-FLOREZ, JUAN. DESIGN OF AN EFFICIENT AND AUTOMATED FAULT SIMULATION TOOL APPLIED TO ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2010, vol.77, n.164, pp. 229-239. ISSN 0012-7353.
In this paper an efficient alternative based on a cooperative strategy which uses Matlabâ and ATP and applied in automatic fault simulation in electric power systems is presented. This simulation strategy helps to reduce the time needed to obtain a complete fault database, as it is demonstrated by the results obtained from four different power systems used in tests, where the average reduction in the simulating time is 96% from the simulation time obtained using classical strategies. The fault databases obtained from these simulations are normally used to adjust soft computing toolboxes, applied to solve problems as the here presented and relate to the fault location in power distribution systems.
