This paper describes a graph traversal-based
method for automating system-wide programming of differentialfault protection and generation of fault isolation steps in MVDC shipboard power systems (SPS). Automation is highly desired due
to the increased complexity of isolating faults using disconnect switches rather than breakers. The method in this paper describes the derivation of a graph abstraction from the electrical system
that is then used for computing a minimal but sufficient isolation sequence consisting of commands issued to breakers and switching converters.
