This paper presents a general method for pinpointing location of fault on a transmission line by employing only voltage measurements on any bus for any type of fault and taking advantage of bus impedance matrix technique. The approach assumes that the network data is available. Possible scenarios where prefault measurements are not available, and scenarios where only voltage magnitude is available, are considered.
