WEBCAST: Critical Power: Selective Coordination
Selective coordination is a means of localizing an overcurrent condition to restrict electrical outages to the affected equipment, circuit, or feeder. In a properly coordinated system, a fault induces operation of the nearest device on the line side of the fault and limits the outage to only the faulted portion of the system.
