The directional overcurrent and distance relays of a multiloop network are to be set in a sequence to ensure coordination. The starting points of the sequence are called break points. It is desirable to minimize the number of break points. An algorithm to determine the minimum number of break points of a network is presented. It can be readily implemented on a computer and forms a basic component of a computer aided design package of a protective system.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
