    The testing of adaptive protection schemes is a problem that remains largely unaddressed. These schemes can be characterized by uncertainty in behavior due to the dynamic changes in their configuration to suit prevailing network conditions. This paper proposes a novel approach to formalizing this behavior using hybrid systems modeling. This unlocks the ability to verify the safety performance of the schemes using reachability analysis. In this paper, an adaptive setting selection logic for distance protection is verified for its safety, using reachability analysis, during changes in network conditions.
