Get up to speed on the fast and easy features of EasyPower with these comprehensive videos.
Active Arc Flash Mitigation Solutions
A newly introduced, active arc elimination system can effectively help to mitigate the potentially severe consequences of an arc fault. The Ultra-Fast Earthing Switch (UFES) extinguishes an internal arc by redirecting the uncontrolled energy release into a defined and controlled bolted connection of all 3 phases to earth potential. It is designed to detect and quench a burning internal arc in less than one-third of a cycle and therefore offers the highest degree of protection for personnel and equipment. This session, presented by Cansu Yildirim, Business Development Manager for Control & Protection Solutions at ABB in Germany, will provide you an overview of different UFES arc flash protection devices. Furthermore, she discusses the possibilities and advantages of the UFES arc elimination system with regards to process outage time, as well as equipment and personnel safety.
Hot Work Permits with EasyPower
The first team meeting facility managers should schedule after receiving a newly completed Arc Flash Hazard Study is the one with their maintenance supervisors to review all buses identified as Arc Flash Hazards and single out all that may require hot work. The purpose of the meeting will be to address how best to provide the safest condition possible for any necessary hot work. The ultimate goal that the team should target is the competition of the document known as the Hot Work Permit template for each procedure and each system element that the teams agrees requires attention while the system is still energized. During this Tuesday Refresher, Jim Chastain, EasyPower applications engineer, will detail the procedure to create HTML templates that EasyPower will may use to create Hot Work Permits as needed by your electrical maintenance team.
Understanding the New Generation of Medium Voltage Switchgear
Traditional medium voltage circuit breaker switchgear was largely developed in the 1970s and has experienced limited and minor changes since its original conception. In order to address modern needs, the industry can look to new designs of medium voltage switchgear. This webinar, given by Joe Richard at Schneider Electric, discusses how the new features of solid insulated and gas insulated switchgear can help solve safety, maintenance, and footprint complications with contemporary designs. In order to implement these modern switchgear designs it is important to understand the architectural and application differences between traditional switchgear and the new generation of medium voltage switchgear.
Basics Steps in EasyPower to Conduct an Arc Flash Study Using the New IEEE 1584–2018 Model
Changes in the IEEE 1584–2018 standard may have an significant effect on the Arc Flash results for most facilities in the US. During this Refresher Webinar, Jim Chastain discusses the various parameters that are affected by these changes and recommends a comprehensive workflow to incorporate the changes in both data collection and the analysis stages of an arc flash study.
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.
