Since weak fault signals often lead to the misjudgment and other problems for faulty line selection in small current to ground system, this paper proposes a novel faulty line selection method based on variable scale bistable system (VSBS). Firstly, VSBS is adopted to analyze the transient zero-sequence current (TZSC) with different frequency variety scale ratio and noise intensity, and the results show that VSBS can effectively extract the variation trends of initial stage of TZSC. Secondly,

Lastly, correlation coefficients of every line characteristic current are used as the index to a novel faulty line selection criterion. A large number of simulation experiments prove that the proposed method can accurately select the faulty line and extract weak fault signals in the environment with strong noise.
