Abstract : Given a system of the structure assumed, or which was transformed into the structure assumed, a model is proposed which computes alternative sets of protecion levels for equipment classes to satisfy specified subsystem protection levels. The calcultion procedure is algorthmic or canonical once the system was represented in terms of the model. Procedures are suggested for further manipulating the alternative sets which are computed, to yield further alternatives. (Author)
