This paper demonstrates the usage of fast fourier transform and wavelet transform in locating faults using a simple transmission line. Transmission lines connect the generating stations and load centers. Hence, the chances of fault occurring in transmission lines are very high. Signal processing is the most important part of the digital distance protection schemes. The proposed model effectively helps in locating the fault such as L-G,LL,LL-G,LLL using MATLAB/SIMULINK. In doing so it describes the method of analysis of above two transforms in SIMULINK environment using the above two transforms. MATLAB simulation results show the wavelet method of transforms is a good and powerful tool to estimate the disrupts location on the transmission line when fault occurs.
