About Electrocon International, Inc.

Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Electrocon International, Inc. develops and markets CAPE software for protection engineering. CAPE's graphical network modeling and system simulation support automatic relay setting, detection of miscoordinated settings, and event analysis. CAPE's is the largest and most detailed library of relay models available. With more detailed, more accurate models, protection engineers study real life conditions, perform wide-area reviews, predict protection system performance, and much more. Electrocon provides ongoing technical support and CAPE-related services for its customers all over the world, which include transmission utilities and engineering firms of all sizes.

Electrocon has been developing tools for computer-aided protection engineering since 1985, working with input from protection engineers from leading North American power utilities. CAPE’s original mission was to create a combined network and protection system model that would support automated relay setting and coordination checking. Today, with a master library of over 5,500 manufacturer-specific relay styles and supported by a true database management system, it is common to see CAPE network models of 2,000 to more than 30,000 buses and protection system models of 5,000 to 50,000 relays. Wide Area Coordination reviews have become a reality as one tool to improve overall power system reliability.
