The aim project is to determine the distance of underground cable fault from exact location in kilometers. When any fault like short circuit occurs, voltage drop will vary depending on the length of fault in cable, since . The resistors are therefore used to represent the cable .With the development in technology ,many changes. As technology us to understand its important like in urban areas, the electrical cable runs underground instead of overhead lines, which occupies less space and suppose as the effect and efficient way of transmission .But the problems occur when any fault occurs in the underground cable and it’s also difficult to detect the appropriate location of the fault during the of repairing the particular cable and some algorithm in order to modify the location of the fault. The proposed system comprises of current sensors, Arduino uno and wifi modem which creats a pathway between the assembled hardware and internet so that the real time data can be communicated to the server its being serially communicated towards server and along with this everything and connected with help of IOT the real-time data can be arrived I laptops or smartphones from the server.
