Arc Flash the Easy Way - Part 3, Modeling and Initial System Analysis
The third installment of this series focuses on the use of the EasyPower Arc Flash Suite #2 to construct the one-line model from the collected data and then proceeds to the initial steps required to calculated arc flash incident energies. Industry standards describing the use of the IEEE-1584 model are detailed and examples provided. This will be similar to the prior instances of this presentation, but updated to include techniques in EasyPower for comparing your electrical system using the IEEE 1584-2002 vs. 1584-2018 standard.
Arc Flash the Easy Way - Part 2: Data Collection
Of the overall time involved in an Arc Flash study, data collection can be the most costly if not properly planned. Eliminating the need for repeated trips to the site and avoiding excessive delays and cost is the focus for this presentation. Second in the Arc Flash Risk Assessment series, this presentation emphasizes the benefits that can be recognized both in cost reduction and employee education when facilities maintenance teams are part of the process. This updated presentation includes information on the many changes to data collection due to new calculation parameters in the IEEE 1584-2018 standard.
Arc Flash The Easy Way - Part 1: Regulations and Industry Standards
We kick of the first part of a 4-week series on how to meet NFPA compliance and control costs with a discussion of safety related to arc flash hazards and the evolution of regulator standards in the 15 years since their introduction. This will be similar to the prior instances of this presentation, but updated to include changes to the NFPA 70E-2021 standard.
Bonded vs Isolated Lightning Protection Concepts & their Application to Explosive Areas
Both the NFPA780 and IEC62305 lightning protection standards provide fundamentally different concepts for implementing lightning protection, with a BONDED system connected to grounded metal parts of a structure, while an ISOLATED system is implemented to prevent lightning current on parts of the structure. In certain applications an isolated LPS is preferred and beneficial to the structure and its contents, however more difficult to implement correctly. This webinar, given by Steven Weber, Senior Engineer at DEHN, Inc., covers the aspects of implementing these protection concepts for areas with explosive atmospheres, and compare the requirements, implementation, and behavior of a bonded system with an isolated system.
Short Circuit Currents According to IEC 60909
In this webinar, given by Lionel Ng at ABB, we look at the IEC 60909 standard. This standard deals with short circuit currents in three-phase AC systems. Calculation of short circuit currents is fundamental in all electrical designs to help protect the system, equipment, and people. Understanding short circuit currents also enables designers to size the components correctly and accurately. Attendees will learn how short circuit currents can be defined manually, with the help of tables, or with the help of calculation software. The examples in this webinar mainly focus on low voltage systems.
