In order to improve the performance of fault diagnosis algorithm for power communication network, a fault location model based on fault and symptom information of power communication network is constructed. A fault diagnosis algorithm for power communication network based on TOPSIS algorithm is proposed. First, the fault symptom matrix is used to model the problem, and the working state of the underlying network resource is correlated with the running symptom information of the upper layer power service. Secondly, a fault diagnosis algorithm for power communication network based on TOPSIS algorithm is proposed. The algorithm includes four sub-processes: constructing a Bayesian fault location model based on the set of detection results, sorting suspected fault sets and fault analysis based on TOPSIS, and selecting fault nodes in turn using the maximum coverage. In the simulation experiment part, compared with the existing algorithms, it is verified that the proposed algorithm effectively improves the accuracy and reduces the false positive rate of the fault diagnosis algorithm.
