Introduction to Protective Device Coordination - Part 1
In this EasyPower refresher webinar, Jim Chastain at EasyPower, covers the basic elements of Protective Device Coordination and describes the value of TCC curves as a tool to analyze the system protection scheme. This presentation is geared toward arc flash beginners and anyone not familiar with series coordination.
Do's and Don'ts of Personal Protective Grounding
Temporary protective grounding serves a critical safety function when working on electrical power systems. Although many field service personnel are well acquainted with the requirements of using temporary protective grounds, many others have only a partial understanding of important aspects of it. This webinar, given by Jim White at Shermco, reviews the more important aspects of the application of temporary protective grounds, including sizing, order of placement and removal, results of misapplication and common rules for working with temporary protective grounds.
AC Interference in Shared Corridors
Increasingly, the electric power industry finds the need for rights-of-way that are either co-located or that cross other conductive facilities such as pipelines or railroads. High voltage AC transmission lines may affect adjacent facilities, which can possibly damage equipment, reduce the facilities longevity, and create hazards for the personnel and public. This webinar, given by David Lewis, P.E., an electrical engineer at EasyPower, explains how nearby facilities are affected by AC interference and provides guidance in the steps that engineers can take to accurately evaluate the complex challenges of AC interference using XGSA_FD.
Guide to Arc Flash Mitigation Methods
There are many solutions available to mitigate arc flash hazards, but how do they compare against each other? This presentation, given by Antony Parsons, Ph.D., P.E. and Jeff M. Miller, P.E. at Schneider Electric, provides a contrasting look at the hazard avoidance, prevention, containment, and reduction solutions available. Solutions are then discussed in terms of their mitigation effectiveness as well as their impact on event recovery, footprint, installation, commissioning, and CapEx & OpEx costs. Not all solutions can be applied in every application, so best practices and limitations are examined. In addition, many codes and standards work in absolutes and do not consider the likelihood of electrical incidents which should also be considered when choosing solutions for hazard mitigation.
