The EasyPower Device Library – Proper Care and Feeding
Some components of your EasyPower device library may be older than the many engineers from around the world who rely on its accuracy. EasyPower has gone to great lengths to allow users to customize the database as needed and still maintain the seamless integration with the EasyPower suite of tools. This refresher webinar, conducted by Jim Chastain at EasyPower, gives an overview of the key elements found in the device library and focuses on how to use the Update Utility feature to prevent losing your customized library content.
Understanding the USA NFPA 70E and the Canadian CSA Z462 Standards
This webinar, given by Terry Becker, P.Eng., CESCP, IEEE Senior Member at TW Becker Electrical Safety Consulting Inc, is intended to bridge between Canada and the USA with respect to CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E. He will provide a short introductory background on the how the standards are developed in each country and then highlight what we can expect in NFPA 70E 2021 and what may be included in CSA Z462. Terry is a voting member on the CSA Z462, CSA Z463 and IEEE 1584 Technical Committees, as well as the IEEE 1584.1 sub-committee.
Converting a Solar or Wind Farm Design to an Equivalent Lumped Model for Bulk Electrical System Studies
In this webinar, Tao Yang, Ph.D, PE, from EasyPower describes how to convert a detailed solar or wind farm one-line model in EasyPower to an equivalent utility-scale lumped model, which can then be used in Bulk Electric System (BES) level studies such as power flow, short circuit, and stability. He describes the method used to calculate lumped pad mount transformers (GSU) specifics, collector system equivalent, and lumped generator specifics, using a practical solar farm design model as an example for the entire process. Note: This is an advanced topic - it is not meant for an EasyPower beginner.
Electrical Safety Design: Choose the Right Components to Reduce Electrical Hazards and Enhance Plant Safety
Within every plant’s electrical infrastructure, there are safety control points where improvements can be made to reduce hazards. In this webinar, presented by Mark Pollock at Littelfuse, Inc, you learn how designing for electrical safety can reduce incident energy levels, avoid exposure to panels, stop arc-blast situations before they stop you, update safety in older facilities, and minimize electrical shock.
The Arc Flash The Easy Way, 4-Part Webinar Series
The Arc Flash Made Easy Webinar Series is a four part series that covers the steps needed to do a basic arc flash study. The topics include the NFPA and OSHA standards and regulations that apply to arc flash. Then data collection in covered in preparation for system modeling and initial arc flash analysis. The series wraps up with arc flash reports, labels, and project recommendations.
