The Standard Electrical Dictionary
Determining the position of anything, such as a break in a cable, or a grounding in a telegraph line. In ocean cables two typical cases are the localization of a break in the conductor and of a defect in the insulation admitting water. The first is done by determining the static capacity of the portion of the line which includes the unbroken portion of the conductor; the other by determining the resistance of the line on a grounded circuit.
