Title: Fault section estimation in electric power plants and electrical substations using fault trees and neural networks with radial basis function
Keywords: fault section estimation; reliability; fault trees; minimal

Abstract: In the work reliability modeling with fault trees is implemented in fault section estimation. Finding faulted sections and faulted elements are defined as mathematical abstractions from set theory point of view. Minimal path sets and minimal cut sets are used as patterns in learning process of neural network with back propagation of error (BPNN) and neural network with radial basis function (RBNN).
