4 What is Selective Coordination For the full range of possible overcurrentsLINE SIDELOAD SIDEKRP-C-1200SPLPS-RK-600SPOnly closest upstream overcurrent protective device from overcurrent opensOther upstream (larger) overcurrent protective devices do not openSimply explanation of selective coordinationFor the full range of overcurrentsFor any overcurrent, only closest overcurrent protective device OCPD opensFaultOnly this fuse opens
5 Selective Coordination (NEC®) Article 100 DefinitionArticle 700 Emergency SystemsCoordination (Selective)Localization of an overcurrent condition to restrict outages to the circuit or equipment affected, accomplished by the choice of overcurrent protective devices and their ratings or settings.Coordination.Emergency system(s) overcurrent devices shall be selectively coordinated with all supply side overcurrent protective devices(Two exceptions apply for and )(Wording for and is the similar except for the type system)To further the understand “Selective Coordination”, this provides:The NEC definition for selective coordination.In addition is the requirement for selective coordination in emergency systems sectionis same requirement for Legally Required Systemsis requirement for Critical Operations Power Systems (COPS). The requirements is the same except there are no exceptions.
6 Selective Coordination System Prospective Without Selective Coordination With Selective CoordinationLoads Unnecessarily Blacked Out No Unnecessary Load BlackoutsOPENSExplain the system on the left first and explain there are lots of loads off these feeders. The rectangles represent OCPDs.Explain the consequences in terms they can relate to. If you have an actual story of an incident it helps understanding.Selective Coordination is the ability of a system to isolate an overcurrent condition.Without selective coordination, many or all of the upstream devices can also open causing unnecessary power losses to other non problem loads.With selective coordination, the device closest to the overcurrent is the only device which opens, unnecessary power loss is avoided.The concept is easy to understand. Most people just assume that selective coordination is achieved if the upstream overcurrent protective devices have larger ampere ratings. You will discover that this is not the case.NOTAFFECTEDOpensFaultFaultNot AffectedUnnecessary Power Loss
7 Lack of Selective Coordination Many people mistakenly assume that a lower ampere rated fuse will always open before a larger ampere rated fuseIf fuse curves cross, larger upstream fuse and downstream fuse can both open for overcurrents on the loadside of 45A fuse(not selectively coordinated)Selective coordination is not just any fuse amp rating being larger than the amp rating of a downstream fuse. It has to be properly analyzed.
8 Lack of Selective Coordination 0.010.13020080030AX800A200AMany people mistakenly assume that a lower ampere rated circuit breaker will always open before a larger ampere rated circuit breakerWhere the circuit breakers cross, it is interpreted to not be selectively coordinated SeeA smaller, downstream circuit breaker may not selectively coordinate with larger, upstream circuit breakers, These curves are for molded case circuit breakers which is the majority of circuit breakers sold.
9 Selective Coordination System To achieve selective coordination for electrical systems requires engineering analysis and proper overcurrent protective device selectionFor most electrical systems, selective coordination is a desirable design considerationFor some electrical systems, selective coordination is mandatory (limited number of building types and then usually only few circuits)With Selective Coordination No Unnecessary Load BlackoutsOPENSIt is important to make the point that for most systems selective coordination is a desirable design consideration – non mandatory. But what owner would want a built in blackout?However, the NEC does require selective coordination for a few vital systems – limited to few types of building such as arenas, places of assembly, etc, and a few circuits in those buildings. For healthcare buildings it can represent 40 to 50% of the systems.NOTAFFECTEDFault
10 Summary of Requirements: Selective Coordination Selective Coordination requirements100 Definition: Coordination Selective (2005)Required for Essential Electrical Systems (2005)Required for Circuits with multiple Elevators (1993)700.9(B)(5)(b) Exception. OCPDs permitted at alternate source or for equipment (2008)Required for Emergency Systems (2005)Required for Legally Required Standby Systems (2005)Required for Critical Operations Power Systems (COPS) (2008)Several sections of the 2008 NEC were added to require selective coordination for fuses or circuit breakers on specific systems. The (year) provides the National Electrical Code edition in which the requirement entered the NEC.
11 Selective Coordination Requirements Why?Increases system reliability to deliver powerFocus on the load!Availability of power to vital loads as long as possibleLife SafetyPublic safety and national security (COPS)Increases system reliability to power vital loads even during emergencies and disastersFacilitates restoration of power to affected loadsSelective coordination is now required for increased system reliability, which is vital for these critical systems.The substantiation for NEC 2005 proposal pertaining to Article 700 Emergency Systems, which was “accept in principle in part” by the Code Panel, provides insight:“The requirements contained in Article 700 focus on providing a reliable emergency system that will be operational when called upon for its use as supported by the maintenance and testing requirements in The critical nature of the dependence on emergency systems for safety of human life, as stated in the scope, supports these requirements. This article specifically mandates that the emergency circuits be separated from the normal circuits as shown in 700.9(B) and that the wiring be specifically located to minimize system hazards as shown in 700.9(C), all of which reduce the probability of faults or failures to the system so it will be operational when called upon. With the interaction of this article for emergency lighting for egress, it is imperative that the lighting system remains operational in an emergency. Failure of one component must not result in a condition where a means of egress will be in total darkness as shown in In addition, the allowance to bypass the alternative source ground fault protection for equipment shows the preference for system operation in the event of an emergency and the fact that if a fault occurs we do not want the whole system to go down and create an unsafe situation for human life. Selectively coordinated overcurrent protective devices will provide a system that will support all these requirements and principles. With properly selected overcurrent protective devices, a fault in the emergency system will be localized to the overcurrent protective device nearest the fault allowing the remainder of the system to be functional as all the previously mentioned requirements intend to do. Due to the critical nature of the emergency system uptime, selective coordination must be mandated for emergency systems. This can be accomplished by both fuses and circuit breakers based on the system design and the selection of the appropriate overcurrent protective devices.”FaultOPENSNOT AFFECTED

14 Selective Coordination Requirements NEC® Elevator Circuits (since 1993)Requires selective coordination on circuit paths when multiple elevators are on a feeder. Required since 1993 to ensure safety of human life especially during emergency egressPurpose of this requirement?Maximize continuity of serviceQuicker restoration of powerRequired since 1993, the purpose is to avoid stranding passengers on elevators.
15 How to Selectively Coordinate with Fuses? Let’s take a look at what it takes to selectively coordinate fuses
16 Selective Coordination- Fuses LINE SIDELOAD SIDEKRP-C-1200SPLPS-RK-600SPTmTc1200A FuseMeltingThe black dashed lines represent the fault current that would flow if the fuses were not in the circuit. In the lower curve, the downstream fuse (600A fuse), melts and clears as depicted by the small red triangle. There is a thermal energy associated with this let-through current by the 600A fuse (red triangle). The upper diagram represents how the 1200A fuse would respond to this same fault if the 600A fuse were not in the circuit below. The larger red triangle represents the current that flows to melt the 1200A fuse. The white triangle to the right bounded by the red dotted line on the right is the clearing process for the 1200A fuse. When the 600A fuse is in the circuit being feed by the 1200A fuse, the 600A fuse must clear (the small red triangle in the lower diagram) before the 1200A fuse melts (the red triangle in the upper diagram).Simple physics.600A FuseClearingAVAILABLE SHORT-CIRCUIT CURRENTTc1200A fuse melting energymust be greater than600A fuse clearing energy
17 Selective Coordination (SPD p112)Load Side FuseLine Side FuseAt Bussmann, we have made that easy because we have reviewed all of our testing data and placed fuse ratios into a table. This is our selective coordination ratio table. All you have to do is verify the ratio between the upstream and downstream device in order to obtain coordination. With the yellow labeled Low-Peak® fuses, the ratio is 2:1, all the way through the line. There is no need to plot all of the curves. Just verify the ratio. If you have a 100 amp Low-Peak® fuse, all you need to do is make sure that the upstream Low-Peak® fuse is at least 200 amps, and you are coordinated. (The selectivity ratios may not be valid when the two ampere ratings being analyzed are in the same ampere rating case size such as 30 A and 15 A fuses.) Valid up to 200ka or fuse interrupting rating, whichever is lower.LOW-PEAK® : LOW-PEAK®2:1 Line:Load RatioNo plotting required!
