Abstract

An NSF/ONR funded project which aims to study the use of micromechanical machines in a power circuit breaker is discussed. In this project, a radical departure from mechanical circuit breakers is proposed. The objective is to minimize the true total cost using a multiple criteria objective function. The intellectual merit of the project relates to a useful application of microelectromechanical system technology, and a utilitarian application of advanced optimization principles.
