The peculiarities of detection using the location method of single-line-to-ground faults in the electricity transmission lines (ETLs) with 6–35 kV of tree topology and linear structures of 110 kV and higher have been studied. Ways of recognizing reflectograms if there is a fault in the ETL are presented. The investigations were carried out in laboratory settings using ETL models and under real conditions on working ETLs.
