Based in Ann Arbor Michigan (USA), Electrocon International, Inc. is the full-service developer and marketer of CAPE software for protection system simulation and data management. (http://www.electrocon.com) CAPE provides graphical network modeling and views and supports automatic relay setting and detection of miscoordinations. CAPE software comes with the largest and most detailed library of relays in the world.

Unlike more simplistic tools, CAPE’s more detailed, more accurate models help engineers study real life conditions, even combinations of open poles, fallen conductors, faults through impedances, and faults across voltage levels. CAPE supports wide-area reviews, stepped-event fault and relay simulation, and much more.

CAPE is known for responsive customer service, high quality onsite training (http://www.electrocon.com/training.html), annual Users Group meeting, and the world's largest library of macros and relay information.

CAPE (http://www.electrocon.com/capeintro.html) is a series of integrated modules to support the system protection function for high voltage transmission systems and distribution systems within electric power utilities. Detailed modeling capabilities based on a single open source database help protection engineers perform analysis, achieve detailed data management, uncover potential problems, and examine alternative solutions.

CAPE supports networks of any size. All CAPE packages are based on the CAPE Database Editor (http://www.electrocon.com/database.html) to build and maintain the database of integrated network and system protection models. Offers special features for easy transformer model building; relay, recloser, and fuse model import; data merging, and quick entry of protection data. Analysis and reporting modules include:

Short Circuit (http://www.electrocon.com/shortcircuit.html) calculates any type of fault on any size system. Supports standard and customized reporting, automated fault studies, fault location analysis, and user-defined fault conditions.  
   
One-Line Diagram (http://www.electrocon.com/oneline.html) for building and maintaining a system one-line diagram and display of data, short circuit, and protection simulation results. Direct access for opening breakers and applying faults.

Coordination Graphics (http://www.electrocon.com/coordgraph.html) displays overcurrent and distance protective device characteristics. Supports interactive contingency and fault application, graphical relay resetting, and resetting of relay and distribution recloser taps and test points.  

Relay Setting (http://www.electrocon.com/relayset.html) represents a company’s relay setting procedures as user-written macros that perform fault studies, compute raw relay settings, and select actual taps. Library of "starter macros" includes setting the SEL-321 and REL512 in permissive overreach transfer trip schemes, plus many more.

Relay Checking (http://www.electrocon.com/relaycheck.html) provides automated stepped-event simulation of the protection system in response to a variety of fault scenarios. This unique capability allows users to perform wide area evaluation of protection to uncover miscoordinations.

System Simulator (http://www.electrocon.com/systemsim.html) performs single-scenario studies interactively with the one-line diagram.

Line Constants (http://www.electrocon.com/line_constants.html) computes the self positive-sequence impedance and the self and mutual zero-sequence impedances of overhead transmission lines based on conductor and tower data.

Order Production http://www.electrocon.com/orderprod.html  generates data-driven reports on paper of relay settings based on taps and test points for specific locations.

Power Flow (http://www.electrocon.com/powerflow.html)  planning offers both Newton and Fast Decoupled solution methods. Control algorithms support tap and phase-shifting transformers, voltage control by reactive generation, switched capacitor bank operation, and area interchange control.

Short Circuit Reduction (http://www.electrocon.com/shortcircreduc.html) offers two types of network reduction; useful for providing reduced models for EMTP calculations, for other “non-CAPE” programs, and for sharing data with a utility's neighbors.

Settings Transfer Utilities (http://www.electrocon.com/settingstrans.html) can export settings for any group of relays to one or more Neutral Interface files; settings can be taken to the field and safely viewed and modified by the test engineer, reviewed, annotated, and saved.

Breaker Duty (http://www.electrocon.com/breaker.html) automates the evaluation of breaker interrupting duty following approved procedures of either the IEC or ANSI standards. Streamlines the evaluation of new and existing breakers.
