Abstract: This paper suggests a fault detection system of underground cables by making the use of microcontroller and internet of things (IoT). After detecting the location of fault in the underground cable the microcontroller alerts the user remotely through the IoT. The occurrence of fault up to a predefined distance can be investigated through this proposed system. The display unit is attached to the system for displaying the electrical parameter such as voltage, current and also the distance at which fault occurs. The fault detector measures the current and voltage of underground cable and if there occurs the high difference between voltages and current of two terminals of fault detector then the detector will alert the user remotely without going close to the cable.
