ELECTRIC ARC FLASH PROTECTION STUDIES

Comprehensive arc flash studies are performed to calculate the incident energy and arc flash boundary for each location in a power system.  Minimum and maximum arcing short circuit currents are calculated using broad tolerances to provide conservative results with estimated system data and determining trip times from the protective device settings.  Incident energy, arc flash boundaries and PPE requirements are calculated following the recommendations of NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584.
