Electricity has become the most sought after amenity for all of us. Gone are the days when electricity would be only limited to cities. It is now reaching to every distant parts of the world. So we have now a complex network of power system. This power is being carried by the transmission lines. These lines travel very long distances so while carrying power, fault occurring is natural. These faults damages many vital electrical equipment like transformer, generator, and transmission lines. For the uninterrupted power supply we need to prevent these faults as much as possible. So we need to detect faults within the shortest possible time. This project is about designing the Numerical relay where the fault is detected when the input value exceeds the reference value set in the relay which then gives the trip signal to the circuit breaker. The Electric Power System is divided into many different sections. One of which is the transmission system, where power is transmitted from generating stations and substations via transmission lines into consumers. Both methods could encounter various types of malfunctions is usually referred to as a "Fault". Fault is simply defined as a number of undesirable but unavoidable incidents can temporarily disturb the stable condition of the power system that occurs when the insulation of the system fails at any point. Moreover, if a conducting object comes in contact with a bare power conductor, a short circuit, or fault, is said to have occurred. In this study, the causes and effects of faults in the overhead transmission lines were the focus of the research. Some of the many causes of faults and some detection methods will be discussed. These faults lead to substantial damage to the power system equipment. In India it is common, the faults might be in the supply systems and these faults in three phase supply system can affect the power system.
