Surge Protection Measures and NEC Requirements
This webinar, given by Mark Hendricks, Technical Director at DEHN Inc, provides a detailed review of the applications where surge protective devices (SPDs) are required to be installed on the electrical distribution system in order to meet the National Electric Code. Over the past several code cycles, the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70, NEC), has added sections requiring that surge protective devices (SPDs) SHALL be used on all dwellings, wind generation systems (Article 694), emergency systems (Article 700) and power systems impacting homeland security (article 708). Article 708 covering mission critical homeland security systems further requires a risk assessment and mitigation plan for meteorological hazards such as lightning. This is a continuing and ongoing process of recognizing the importance of lightning and surge protection for critical services and for facilities which although not critical, are at above average risk for loss of life or property due to lightning.
The 10 Most Common Mistakes Made in Arc Flash Studies
Each month we review partial and complete arc flash studies sent from a wide variety of EasyPower users. This Tuesday Refresher webinar focuses on a compilation of the most often seen errors in these studies. Presented by Jim Chastain at EasyPower, this material includes information updated since the same topic was addressed in previous years.
Why Sharing is Not Caring with Arc Flash PPE
The virus that causes COVID-19 is highly contagious and can be spread between workers that share the same personal protective equipment (PPE). Most industries would never allow sharing PPE due to hygiene regulations, but it is a common practice in the electrical safety industry. Workers have been sharing arc flash and shock PPE for decades, but this practice must stop due to the risk of causing an outbreak at your workplace. In this webinar, Jim Pollard at Unlimited PPE, reviews the challenges with sharing various types of arc flash and shock PPE and provides guidance on how best to manage the use of electrical-specific protective equipment during a global pandemic. Presenter - Jim Pollard has been helping employers with their arc flash PPE for over 15 years. His company represents Oberon Arc Flash PPE, PROXXI wearable warnings and offers Electrical Safety Training & Consulting solutions.
Floor Planning Your One-line Diagram
If you have a large facility, you don't get the full value of your one-line diagram if you just start drawing all the busses and panels, without considering the facility layout. In this Refresher Webinar, Jim Chastain at EasyPower discusses the EasyPower features which aid the task of laying out the one-line floor plan and increase its benefits to all stakeholders.
Dynamic Stability – How to Get Started and Get Useful Results
Most electrical systems engineers intuitively understand the immense value and benefit of dynamic simulation of their electrical system. The issue is where to start and how to input all that data required for modelling. In this Refresher Webinar, Jim Chastain details the initial steps to get started and enter the necessary modeling data on a simplified system. He then illustrates how that process can be extended to a more real world model.
