I. Introduction:

\(\bullet\) This system has 3-phase (3\(\phi\)) fault at the midpoint of each line, as shown in the figure given below.
\(\bullet\) It is considered as a one of the most popular test cases in the relays coordination problems. It is the first selected system used in the first puplished paper [1] in the literature.
\(\bullet\) The plug-setting (\(PS\)) is considered discrete in uniform steps of 0.5 A, while the time-multiplier setting (\(TMS\)) is considered continuous. The coordination time interval (\(CTI\)) is equal to 0.2 s. The researcher can change these settings to get fair comparsion with other conducted studies in the literature.
\(\bullet\) In this test case, the transient selectivity constraints are considered too. All the CT ratios (\(CTR\)), the listed P/B relay pairs, the 3\(\phi\) fault at the middle of each line, the generator and line data and the variable bounds of the relays settings are given below (click on them for bigger size):

II. Single-Line Diagram:

\(\bullet\) This single-line diagram was drawn by Ali R. Alroomi in Dec. 2013 and all the necessary data were coded in MATLAB m-files.
