The Surge Voltage Generators are used for pre-locating as well as for pin-pointing of high and low resistance faults in power cables. The stored energy of the high voltage capacitors is fed at intervals in to the faulty cable. This causes an acoustic noise at the fault position which can be detected with a ground microphone and an audio frequency receiver.
