Boundary Calculations for User-Specified Arc Flash PPE Ratings

A new option is available to calculate an additional boundary for arc flash, the PPE Boundary. The PPE Boundary is the distance at which the available incident energy is equivalent to the user-specified PPE Rating. You can set the Rating for PPE Boundary in the Advanced Arc Flash Options. This option applies only when the arc flash hazard Standard is set to use IEEE 1584-2018.
