Fault section estimation is important for the power system to be restored to its normal state after the faulty section is isolated. In this study, artificial neural network based approach is proposed to estimate the faulty section in pow er system by using the information from the protective relays and circuit breakers. The proposed approach is applied to a sample system where bus, transformer and line protection schemes an considered and the results an given.
