One of most important elements of Electric Power Systems (EPS) is the transmission line (TL), which is permanently under adverse conditions especially lightning strokes. At the moment, those phenomena have been the root cause of short circuits and the most important cause of mal-operation of transmission line protection relays. Thus, this paper develops the classification of lightning transient signals with and without fault. Multi-resolution analysis (MRA) is used to analyze those signals considering five mother wavelets and different decomposition levels of three phase voltages. In this manner, Spectral Energy and Machine Learning as Artificial Neural Network, K-Nearest Neighbors and Support Vector Machine are employed to classify those signals. On the other hand, the developed work in this paper analyzes most important parameters of lightning strokes, which are essentials in producing conditions with and without fault. Results show that the methodology presents an acceptable performance. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
