Abstract

This project explores a method for protecting electric power distribution systems against persistent faults. We designed and implemented a device that we called "Smart Recloser Breaker" to provide the necessary protection for a power distribution system. The "Smart Recloser Breaker" is to open when there is a fault on the main line and close only when the fault is removed or cleared. The device functionality was tested and demonstrated using theoretical and actual simulations.
