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 - 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 - The 2018 release of the  IEEE 1584 standard no longer contains the recommendation to ‘disregard’ systems below 240 vac supplied by 125 kva transformers. During this Tuesday Refresher webinar, Jim Chastain demonstrates the recommended method to include these system elements and discusses possible alternatives to mitigate the cost differences that may result.

Description - We kick of the first part of a 4-week series on how to meet NFPA compliance and control costs with a discussion of safety related to arc flash hazards and the evolution of regulator standards in the 15 years since their introduction. This will be similar to the prior instances of this presentation, but updated with current examples and discussions.

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 - 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.
