In this article, an overview of the protection of transmission lines and distribution system is given with the help of a support vector machine. The errors of investigation and their causes have an essential basis for a secure and consistent power supply always. Rapid changes in the supply system due to disturbances, grid changes due to line trip, and break a large load or generating unit, force the rest to steer and solve new stable conditions. Necessary measures must be taken to protect the transmission and distribution system, such as error detection, classification and localization of errors. In the transmission and distribution system, fault classification mainly adopted well-developed by applying the use of algorithms of machine learning such as, for example, artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic and support vector machines.
