Implementing generative adversarial networks for increasing performance of transmission fault classification

Tilottama Goswami, Uponika Barman Roy, Deepthi Kalavala, Mukesh Kumar Tripathi


An electrical power system is a network that facilitates the sourcing, transfer, and distribution of electrical energy. In the traditional power system, there are eleven types of faults that can occur in the system. This paper focuses on the classification of these faults over a stretch of 100 kilometres. The dataset used is synthetic and generated from a simulated model using MATLAB/Simulink software. Data augmentation is carried out during training to improve the accuracy of the classification. An indirect training approach through generative adversarial network (GAN) is used to classify these overhead transmission line faults. The random forest (RF) classification is used as the base learning model on the original dataset and it achieves accuracy of 84%. However, the base learner RF when used on GAN model generated augmented faulty data, it performs exceptionally well achieving 99% accuracy. One of the recent state-of-art methods is compared with this approach.
