This paper presents an effective approach for establishing countermeasures against voltage sags based on the concept of area of severity. In order to apply preventive measures against faults such as lightning arrester, overhead earth wires and so on, it is important to find optimal points for installing the preventive measures. The optimal points can be determined by the calculation of the area of severity(AOS) to voltage sags and the expected sag frequency per unit length of line. In this paper, an effective method to find optimal points to apply countermeasures against voltage sags is addressed with case studies.
