Fault analysis is an important aspect in the successful operation of a power utility grid. The occurrence of faults in the system is not avoidable as causes of faults are not particularly one but of many with different causes and nature. It is one of the most important as well as it one of the most complex tasks in power engineering. The studies and discovery of faults in electric power systems is essential in ensuring the consistency and the stability if the power grid. Another importance of carrying out fault analysis gives a fair idea of the voltages and the current magnitudes under faulty conditions for different scenarios. This is helpful in the design of protection devices such as fuses, circuit breaker ratings, over current protection relays and other devices that are used for the protection of the system. Protection devices are important features of the power system grid mainly because their role in saving equipment and also human lives. In this paper, we investigate and analyze the behavior of electric power systems under fault conditions and then evaluate various practical scenarios.
