This paper aims to determine and identify the best technical placement for fault locators - FLs - on the distribution network, in order to improve the reliability in the system. The international indices such as SAIFI and SAIDI are evaluated in two scenarios; the first one analyze the power system in its current configuration whereas the second one assumes that FLs are installed in different places. A case study composed of three feeders from Galapagos Islands is analyze, considering different cases with one, two and three FLs.
