Abstract

The project with the microelectromechanical (MEMS) switches in power circuit breaker, funded by NSF - EPNES research project is discussed. The use of MEMS switches will allow the application of advanced optimal operating strategies to permit rapid disconnection of faulted components; rerouting of power from faulted segments to unfaulted segment; and minimization of system losses. The economic component of the project is related to the optimization of the cost to benefit ratio of the innovative distribution system design. An important element of the project is education over a range of individuals including industrial and electrical engineers, students and industry engineers, researchers and practitioners.
