P3004.13 - Recommended Practice for Overcurrent Coordination in Industrial and Commercial Power Systems

IEEE's Industrial Applications Society has determined a need for reorganizing the IEEE's Color Books Series, 13 books that currently cover various topics that fall under the purview of the Industrial and Commercial Power Industry. This comprehensive initiative, driven by the volunteer leadership of I&CPS, acknowledges that the continued and long-term maintenance of IEEE's Color Books has been affected by significant attrition due to declining volunteer resources, the complexity involved in updating each book, and content duplication among the books. The existing content will be integrated into a newly proposed structure by technical topics that will allow for easy updating, more streamlined content, and elimination of duplicative material. [Note: This purpose will not be included in the document]This recommended practice presents the proper coordination of those components that may be required to protect industrial and commercial power systems against abnormalities that could reasonably be expected to occur in the course of system operation. The principles presented are applicable to both new electrical system design and to the changing, upgrading, or expansion of an existing electrical distribution system, plant or commercial business. This document addresses the characteristics, ratings, and settings of overcurrent protective devices that minimize equipment damage and interrupt short circuits as rapidly as possible.
