    hi there
    welcome to PF

    would you like to elaborate a bit please the question is a bit vague

    are you dealing with DC or AC systems ? or both?
    hi or low voltage ?

    hello Dave,
    I'm dealing with AC systems for now. high voltage
    would like to hear from you soon

    abimcdssi, I welcome you here, also! There are several processes here...detecting a fault, isolating a fault, building redundancy to protect critical loads, and, of course, determining the root cause of the fault. I think all this is under the heading of "fault analysis". So, will you please describe your issue in more detail? Say exactly what you are trying to do, please.

    edit: Have you read this technical paper?

    Here's a company that seems to do what you are asking about:
