Guide to Arc Flash Mitigation Methods

There are many solutions available to mitigate arc flash hazards, but how do they compare against each other? This presentation, given by Antony Parsons, Ph.D., P.E. and Jeff M. Miller, P.E. at Schneider Electric, provides a contrasting look at the hazard avoidance, prevention, containment, and reduction solutions available. Solutions are then discussed in terms of their mitigation effectiveness as well as their impact on event recovery, footprint, installation, commissioning, and CapEx & OpEx costs. Not all solutions can be applied in every application, so best practices and limitations are examined. In addition, many codes and standards work in absolutes and do not consider the likelihood of electrical incidents which should also be considered when choosing solutions for hazard mitigation.
