I. Introduction:

\(\bullet\) The network of this test case is shown in the figure given below, where the near-end \(3\phi\) fault is considered. Bus 4 is connected to an external grid that is modeled by 400 MVA short-circuit capacity.
\(\bullet\) Some studies named this system as a 6-bus test system, because bus 7 and bus 8 are connected to the generating units and do not have any relay.
\(\bullet\) The available set of the discretized plug-setting (\(PS\)) is \(\{0.5,0.6,0.8,1.0,1.5,2,2.5\}\). Although this test case has small dimension, it has been noticed that it is very hard to get feasibly and optimal solution; please refer to our study given in the references section.
\(\bullet\) The CT ratios (\(CTRs\)) and the \(3\phi\) short-circuit current for each P/B pair of relays 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 Sept. 2013 and all the necessary data were coded in MATLAB m-files.
