This study proposes an intelligent traveling-wave (TW)-based protection algorithm for parallel transmission lines. In the proposed algorithm, Karenbauer's phase to modal transform is applied on three phase current signals. Teager energy operator is then applied on the modal components to extract TWs. First extracted TW of each modal component along with well-designed fuzzy systems are used for internal fault identification and fault type classification. In order to find the fault location, the time difference between the first and the second TWs and the TW propagation speed are utilised. Test signals are generated in PSCAD/EMTDC software and the algorithm is implemented in MATLAB. Results show that the proposed algorithm is an ultra-high-speed algorithm for the reliable protection of parallel transmission lines.
