Weekly Informational and Training Webinars

At EasyPower, we offer a variety of weekly webinar sessions to help you become better acquainted with the software and to further develop your skills and understanding. There are two different types of webinars.

  • The Tuesday Refresher webinars are short (30 minute) sessions going over the basics of using EasyPower software in a variety of situations.
  • The Thursday webinars topics will vary and are also applicable for beginning to advanced users, depending on the topics covered. See the webinar schedule below.

If you are not currently using EasyPower, download a free demo version of the software and sign up for one of these classes or view the free training videos. We also offer extensive regional and on-site training options - view our training schedule.

Tuesday Refresher Webinars

Start at 8:00am PST (roughly every other week)

Topic - Refresher/beginner series for using EasyPower software, various topics. This will include insights and tips for using EasyPower, not system engineering, which is often covered more in the Thursday Webinars.

Description - 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 will be similar to the prior instances of this presentation, but updated to include changes to data collection, which are many, as dictated by new calculation parameters in the IEEE 1584-2018 standard.

Description - 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 changes in EasyPower to reflect those made to the IEEE 1584-2018 standard.

Description - This last installment in the Arc Flash Risk Assessment series will highlight the EasyPower tools utilities which facilitate compliance with the requirements of NFPA-70E. Included in the presentation is the ability to print and export reports, customize the report layout, customize label content, and printing. In addition, the EasyPower label editor permits the use of QR codes to extend the information available to anyone able to scan the equipment label.

Description - In this webinar, Jim Chastain at EasyPower discusses issues related to Protective Device Coordination using EasyPower software. Topics include: molded case circuit breakers (MCCB) versus low voltage power circuit breakers (LVPCB), coordination of MCCBs (including Series Coordination in EasyPower), relay coordination time intervals, transformer damage curves, transformer protection, TCC clipping, maximum current versus individual bus fault, and when to use I2t In/Out - if ever. This is an updated webinar based on a very popular webinar given in 2017.

Description - EasyPower generates a lot of data during the process of an arc flash hazard analysis. In this webinar Jim Chastain will describe where this information can be found and other applications for the data than just study reports. Almost every report can be configured to meet your specific needs. We start with the recommended list of information ‘required’ by the standards. Included in the presentation is step by step instructions about how to use the Scenario Manager to compare Arc Flash results from 1584-2002  and  1584 – 2018.  Don’t miss it!

Description - The EasyPower label editor allows users to configure the label look and content to meet the requirements of any client or facility owner. Most printed labels may be out of date or reflect incorrect information when system elements are changes. EasyPower includes a feature to allow update information to be always available by incorporating a QR code on the label and linking the URL to a customer controlled web page which can be updated at will. During this refresher webinar, Jim Chastain highlights the details of creating a label for today’s technology.

  • Presented by Mark Pollock, at Littelfuse, Inc.
  • Completed - Watch Video Now

Description - Within every plant’s electrical infrastructure, there are safety control points where improvements can be made to reduce hazards. In this webinar, presented by Mark Pollock at Littelfuse, Inc, you  learn how designing for electrical safety can reduce incident energy levels, avoid exposure to panels, stop arc-blast situations before they stop you, update safety in older facilities, and minimize electrical shock.

Description - The serving transformer plays a significant role in the available short circuit capacity of an exposed energized circuit part in any location on an electrical distribution or control system. This webinar, given by Greg Harstine at CES Inc, focuses on how transformers of various sized impact the available short circuit capacity at a particular location. The focus is on common electrical distribution systems found in small to medium size industries and also looking at the system connected to an infinite bus compared to an example utility system given the available system short circuit capacity and X/R ratio.

Description - In late 2018, the main standard that defines the arc flash equations, the “IEEE 1584 : Guide for Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations” standard, was updated for the first time since 2002. This new version of the standard brought many changes with regards to arc flash studies. For example, the 125 kVA transformer limit was removed and the electrode configurations and enclosure sizes were added as new parameters in the equations. This webinar, Simon Giard-Leroux, PE at CIMA+, will be an in-depth presentation about the new 2018 version of the standard and its impact on arc flash studies.

Description - This webinar, given by Justin Gaull of CBS ArcSafe, discusses and highlights the use of remote racking and remote switching technologies for the reduction and elimination of human risk of injury associated with arc flash hazards. As an engineered control to reduce risks of the hazard, remote devices that provide a safe operating distance is a preferred method of increasing arc flash safety. 

  • Presented by David Lewis, PE, Grounding and Power Systems at EasyPower
  • Completed - Video coming soon

Description - Utility scale systems (5 MW or greater) present several challenges for properly designing grounding system for personnel protection concerns. This discussion, given by David Lewis, PE, Grounding and Power Systems at EasyPower, highlights some of these challenges and provide methodologies to accurately assess the grounding system performance with regard to IEEE Std 80.
