Abstract
This paper presents an application of antenna arrays and MUSIC algorithm for estimating the location of an electric arc source. The proposed technique can be used to localize arc faults in photovoltaic arrays and their associated transformation stations. The technique was implemented and tested in the laboratory. For this purpose, an experimental setup consisting of 4 antennas, a digital storage oscilloscope with computer connectivity and a PC (Personal Computer) for data processing was built. The results proved that the proposed method is able to estimate the direction of the electric arc source with reasonable accuracy.
