An automatically controlled electrical system controls a plurality of loads in the functions of load resetting, logical control, load sequencing, overload evaluation, and load shedding with single point control. A data entry and display means provides a manual interface with the system. The system utilizes remotely controlled power switching and circuit protective devices. A small general purpose computer is used to effect control functions by, preferably, multiplexed control signals. The computer directs the control signals to and from the appropriate switching devices and it also provides capability to program for automatic control, sequencing and self-checkout functions.
