This paper proposes a detection method for high impedance fault, which occurs in the power system when a line conductor breaks down physically and in contact with a high impedance medium, resulting in low magnitude current, and these high impedance faults are difficult to detect by standard methods. A Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) technique is implemented in this paper for normal conditions, High impedance fault also, non-High impedance fault conditions like capacitance switching, and non-linear load. Discrete wavelet transform provides a base for identifying these high impedance faults in the power system. This paper shows five levels of decomposition db15(d1 to d5) are high-frequency decomposition and A5 is low-frequency decomposition. Decomposition is the fifth stage D5 shows the appropriate for detection of normal conditions, High impedance fault also non-High impedance fault conditions in each phase of the system. This result shows the exact identification of faults even at lower magnitude current appropriately under assumed fault conditions.
