This paper presents a new concept, based on variable dead time control, in adaptive single-pole auto reclosing (SPAR). The proposed scheme can give rise to a high rate of successful reclosing by adapting to variable dead times. The significance of this algorithm is that it uses the waveform patterns of the voltage transients following initial breaker opening. The performance of this proposed method is tested under a variety of fault locations on the Korean 765 kV system, and the outcome of the study clearly indicates that variable dead time auto-reclosing scheme can be used as an attractive and effective means of better management and operation of a high-voltage transmission system.
