Transient recorder type fault indicator is installed on the distribution line to monitor line operating parameters, detect and indicate various short-circuit and ground faults, and send monitoring information and fault detection data to the main power distribution station.

The fault indicator of transient recording type is composed of an acquisition unit and a collection unit. The zero-sequence current is synthesized by collecting the three-phase fault current waveform file of the fault line, and the fault section is judged according to the transient characteristics of the three-phase composite zero-sequence current, and the fault line is accurately indicated. and fault points and issue a fault alarm indication (or information). It has basic functions such as short-circuit and ground fault identification, fault remote transmission alarm, fault alarm reset, prevention of false alarms from load fluctuations, live loading and unloading, and advanced functions such as monitoring line status information, transient fault and permanent fault judgment, and fault recording.
