Protective Device Coordination with EasyPower - Part 1, Introduction to the PowerProtector Module
Device coordination can be a complex topic because the process can exacerbate the task of mitigating arc flash incident energy. The advantage offered by the EasyPower tool suite is the ability to identify and ‘see’ the issues that could be problems in your system. With this knowledge, better decisions can be made to protect the system and ultimately provide a safer workplace for employees. In Part 1 of this 2-part series, Jim Chastain at EasyPower introduces us to TCC curves and how EasyPower displays plots for protective devices, loads, and current limits. He also discusses bolted, arcing, and ground fault currents.
