This paper proposes fault location algorithms by utilizing sparse current measurements. Bus impedance matrix techniques are utilized to find a direct solution and the need of iterative searching of the fault location is eliminated. Algorithms for scenarios where current phasors or current magnitude are available from one or two branches are developed.
