The custom power devices play important role for enhancing the power transfer capacity of transmission system. However, these devices introduce challenges of under reach or over reach, in the protection of transmission system. This article introduces a novel, protection algorithm based on wavelet-alienation-neural technique for STATCOM-compensated transmission system. For detecting and classifying faults, approximate coefficients are computed from the postfault quarter cycle current waveforms. Fault index, which is summation of alienation coefficients (computed by approximate coefficients) of both the buses, is computed and compared with the threshold magnitude for detecting and classifying the different faults. For the determination of fault location, artificial neural network is applied, with input as three-phase approximate coefficients, evaluated from the voltage and current signals over a time duration of a quarter cycle. Robustness of the developed scheme has been validated for various faults at different locations with varying fault impedances and angles of fault incidence.
