Supplementary use of microprocessors in electrical engineering education can provide an effective learning environment for introductory as well as advanced studies. In addition, sufficient exposure to microcomputers as a design and analysis tool is consistent with the ever expanding industria applications of these devices. Presented is an approach to the creation of such a situation through interactive application of a low-cost microcomputer system. The procedure given applies to the instruction of power system analysis and overcurrent relaying techniques, but it is evident that these analytical and graphic approaches could also be applied in other areas of electrical engineering.
