One of the recent problems which is encountered and detected in the Electrical Distribution Lines is in the Pin Insulator such as Breaking of Conductor placed on the Pin Insulator, cracks & damage in the pin insulator due to its exposure to the atmospheric conditions such as humidity, moisture & bird excretion etc. Detection and Identification of this problem is very difficult for the operators and linemen working because there are so many distribution lines run across consumer localities and a number of pin insulators placed on each pole and there are so many poles in each distribution lines. In Modern day of human life electricity has a vital importance. Consumers of the electricity always demand a power without interruption and fluctuations in it, And it is also the responsibility of the electricity supplying companies and electricity boards across the globe to provide electrical power more efficiently and take care of all the electrical equipments installed on the system and the proper maintenance of the process and equipments so that the efficiency of the equipments and their work life will be maintained. The proposed system will automatically detect the fault in the distribution lines due to conductor breaking on the pin insulator and its exact location with the help of Current Transformer, Analog to Digital Converter and Raspberry-Pi processor then through the cloud all the collected data is sent at a time to the operator directly in the control room and also to the linemen operating into that area.

Keywords : Electrical Distribution Lines, Pin Insulator, Current Transformer, Analog to Digital Converter, Raspberry-Pi Processor, Control Room.
