Abstract: The main goal of this project is to use Arduino to detect errors and anomalies in underground cables. The main idea behind the work of this project is the law of resistance. On the branch side, when a DC voltage is applied, the current value changes according to the location of the cable fault. In the event of a short circuit (such as LG or LL failure), the change in the voltage value measured on the resistor will be fed to the Arduino's onboard ADC. This value is processed by the Arduino and calculates the error related to the distance of the base station. This value is sent to the LCD screen connected to the Arduino board and displays the exact location of the base station fault in kilometers for all three phases. The project consists of a set of resistors equal to the length of the cable. The emergency switch is placed every known kilometer to manually trigger the error. Finally, the distance to the damaged part can be determined.
