Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of uncertainties in the input parameters by specifying them as compact intervals, taking into consideration the errors in modelling and measurement of transmission line parameters and also the continuous influence of load measurement errors and fluctuations in the load demand. The power flow equations are modelled as a set of nonlinear algebraic equations which are first linearised using Taylor series expansion and the solution is obtained by the Krawczyk's method of interval arithmetic. For the short circuit analysis the prefault conditions are obtained from power flow analysis and the faulty network is then solved using Thevenin's equivalent network as seen from the fault point. The proposed method is applied to 3 bus, 14 bus and 30 bus IEEE test systems where load currents and fault currents for each relay are obtained in bounded form and thus well-defined relay coordination pairs are available.
