Nowadays sustainability and quality of energy have gained more importance. Power outages due to failures particularly cause interruption of production at industrial facilities may lead to loss of manpower and resources. One of the major causes of power outages in the power system is the short-circuit faults occurring in transmission lines. The most important requirement to clear the fault in a short time is to estimate the fault location quickly and accurately. In this study, fault location is determined in series compensated power transmission lines utilizing transient frequency spectrum. It has been shown that the method is suitable for series compensated lines.
