Electric Utilities have devised many different means to provide fast and reliable fault isolation on transmission lines over the last several decades.  End-to-end communications have played an important role in this pursuit.  With communications-assisted relaying schemes, line faults can be isolated much quicker, reducing risks to grid stability as well as damage caused by the fault.  In this talk, Jason will discuss some of the schemes and communication systems that have been employed in high-speed line relaying.
