Localization of a Discharge in Transmission Line Networks using Time Reversal with TLM
Keywords:Electrical discharge, electromagnetic simulation, source reconstruction,, time reversal, transmission line networks
The location of an electrical discharge in a transmission line network is found from its recorded transient response by means of a time reversal simulation. The accuracy of the localization procedure depends on how closely the simulator models the wave properties of the network that must be linear, reciprocal, and virtually loss-free. TLM simulations are presented.
