Designing safe and reliable electrical distribution systems consistent with the mission of the system and conscious of budgetary and schedule limitations has always been the intent of the good electrical systems designer.  However, in recent years, increasing focus on arc flash and electrical safety as well as clauses within various codes have influenced the electrical designer to consider the compromise between protection and system reliability differently.  Achieving selectivity at the expense of protection, or protection at the expense of selectivity is neither desirable, nor consistent with good engineering practice anymore.  Luckily manufacturers have provided product solutions and associated analytical techniques that allow designers to offer excellent protection and significant selectivity simultaneously.  Understanding how protective devices really work and how to implement them is the key to achieve the potentially competing goals of maximum protection and maximum selectivity simultaneously.
