Get up to speed on the fast and easy features of EasyPower with these comprehensive videos.
An intro to the changes in IEEE 1584-2018
In this webinar, given by Jim Phillips, Vice-Chair of IEEE 1584, he takes you through the history of what it took to develop the next edition of IEEE 1584-2018. He then discusses the major changes, why they were made and what they mean.
Two Ways to Reduce the Cost of an Arc Flash Study
During this Tuesday Refresher, given by Jim Chastain at EasyPower, we approach the topic reducing the cost of doing an arc flash study from two perspectives. The first is a follow up of last month’s discussion on low voltage elements. The second approach explores justification for ‘group classification’ to reduce the need to collect specific data on EVERY 480 volt panel.
The Value of Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
In this webinar, given by Ralph DeLisio at Predictive Service, an overview is provided of arc flash and electrical safety. Attendees will learn the OSHA and NFPA 70E requirements for workers and the workplace. Ralph starts with an overview of what arc flash is and who is affected by arc flash and electrical safety. He covers a number of topics regarding compliance including what drives compliance and his approach to it.
208 VAC Arc Flash Study - An Actual PowerStart Discussion
This Tuesday Refresher, presented by Jim Chastain, is the result of a recent PowerStart session where a new EasyPower user encountered issues with a 208 volt system. The discussion includes a process to detect missing or incomplete data and recommendations to address the low voltage/ low energy systems where NFPA 70E guidance is specifically vague. A very good webinar for new tool users in general. For new customers, the PowerStart session is an hour long product orientation that helps EasyPower owners get up and running on their first project. By addressing most beginner type questions initially, the learning curve can be dramatically shortened. The goal is to provide a smooth transition and better utilization of EasyPower Tech Support where more in depth technical question can be addressed as needed.
Arc Flash Labeling Strategies – Keeping it Simple!
In this webinar, by Jim Phillips, founder of BrainFiller.com and ArcFlashForum.com and also Vice-Chair of IEEE 1584 and International Chair of IEC TC78, you will see how to develop a simplified labeling strategy that makes labels easier to understand for the end user and also helps minimize the need to relabel. He has been advocating this method for years and has numerous published articles on the subject. Jim will begin with the history of arc flash labeling and early NEC requirements. He then takes you through the evolution of labels from simple – to complicated – and now back to simple again. Jim will cover the most current requirements from NEC, NFPA 70E 2018 and ANSI Z535 including the latest NFPA 70E exception where details may no longer be required on a label pending specific conditions.
Grounding Calculations in XGSLab's GSA_FD Software
This webinar, given by Roberto Andolfato and Daniele Cuccarollo at SINT Ingegnaria in Italy, gives an intermediate level introduction to the concepts of grounding calculations and how they can be applied using XGSLab's GSA_FD grounding software.
