This paper describes a research project focusing on the provision of 'intelligent' engineering support facilitating two major UK utilities in the design of complex protection schemes associated with electrical transmission networks. The development and functionality of the Design Engineering Knowledge Application System (DEKAS) will be described within the paper. In addition, broader issues concerning the capture of design rationale for design re-use and the application of knowledge engineering techniques in the development of expert systems and the general promotion of knowledge management and will be explored.
