Electricity is becoming increasingly important in modern civilization, and as a result, the emphasis on and use of power infrastructure is gradually expanding. Simultaneously, investment and distribution modes are shifting from the large-scale centralized generation of electricity and sheer consumption to decentralized generators and extremely sophisticated clients. This transformation puts further strain on old infrastructure, necessitating significant expenditures in future years to ensure a consistent supply. Subsequent technical and prediction technologies can help to maximize the use of the current grid while lowering the probability of faults. This study discusses some of the local grid difficulties as well as a prospective maintenance and failure probabilistic model. To provide an effective and convenient power source to consumers, a high Volta protects and maintains under fault conditions. Most of the fault identification and localization approaches rely on real and reactive power converter observations of electronic values. This can be seen in metrics and ground evaluations derived via internet traffic. This paper provides a thorough examination of the mechanisms for error detection, diagnosis, and localization in overhead lines. The proposal is then able to make suggestions about the ways that can be incorporated to predict foreseen faults in the electrical network. The three classifiers, Random Forest, XGBoost and Decision tree are producing high accuracies, while Logistic Regression and SVM are producing realistic accuracy results.
