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 updated presentation includes information on the many changes to data collection due to 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 techniques in EasyPower for comparing your electrical system using the IEEE 1584-2002 vs. 1584-2018 standard.

Description - Lightning current transients injected onto PV modules may cause damage to equipment farther downstream, resulting in equipment loss and production down time. Surge Protective devices for the DC side of PV plants will not be able to withstand peak value lightning strikes without sufficient energy dissipation through the PV field. With the correct implementation of external lightning protection and grounding, it is shown that the surge protection is not overstressed due to sufficient energy dissipation before reaching equipment. The resultant current propagation, transient waveform, and specific energy are calculated at critical locations in the PV Field through XGS Lab simulations. This webinar, given by Ivan Grobbelaar, PE, Senior Engineer at DEHN Africa, shows the importance of external lightning protection and grounding design during the planning phase of a new PV plant.

Description - The construction industry can be inefficient as it continues to use outdated processes and methods which that drive up costs and enable risk. This ultimately prevents many new technologies from unlocking value due to poor ROI. BIM was created to solve these issues as a form of integrated project execution throughout the phases of a project. At first, BIM adoption was mainly for conflict avoidance and constructability. Now modern BIM tools have unlocked the 7 dimensions of BIM, providing easy access to design automation and project management efficiencies. This presentation, given by Jeff M. Miller, P.E., and Bowen Liu at Schneider Electric, looks at modern electrical BIM workflow and how these tools can increase productivity in modeling, drawing production, specification, calculation, analysis, costing, project management, and more.

Description - In this webinar, presented by Terry Becker, P.Eng., CESCP, IEEE Senior Member at TW Becker Electrical Safety Consulting, Inc., we discuss how jobs and related energized electrical work tasks can be completed following the requirements of an employer's Electrical Safety Program in order to be compliant with the mandatory requirements of NFPA 70E or CSA Z462 when managing planned or reactive (breakdown) maintenance work. Following a defined Energized Electrical Job Work Flow (EEJWF) is the basis for good due diligence that is sustainable and defendable and ensures residual risk to Qualified Persons is as low as is reasonably practicable.

Description - Medium voltage switchgear is a very important part of the electrical distribution network that ensures greater reliability with minimum interruptions. Digital switchgear integrates medium voltage sensors for current and voltage measurement in place of traditional current and voltage transformers. The sensors, combined with advanced digital protective relays designed to utilize IEC 61850 communication for signal distribution within the switchgear, are a great solution for modern power distribution systems. Furthermore, integration of arc flash detection and remote monitoring capabilities built into these advanced digital relays help to drastically enhance the safety of operations. This webinar, given by Dwaraka Padimiti and Joe Xavier at ABB Inc, discusses how digital switchgear can save you time, reduce the total cost of ownership, and give you unparalleled flexibility.

Description - EasyPower is excited to announce our release of EasyPower 10.4 suite of tools with many new features for intelligently designing, analyzing, and monitoring electrical power systems. This webinar shows these new features, which include support for single-phase modeling and analysis, updates for NFPA 70 (NEC) 2020 and NFPA 70E 2021, as well as Revit Integrator updates and multiple productivity and usability improvements.

Description - The electrical power industry has been struggling to address the recently added code requirements of selective coordination that apply to Emergency, Legally Required, Elevator, Fire Pumps, and COPS systems. Selective coordination is essential for proper fault isolation of these important systems. Old rules of thumb are no longer valid, and it is critical for design engineers to understand the implications of these requirements and define new solutions and rules of thumb to prevent major re-design to comply with code. This webinar, given by Joe Dietrich, P.E. and Joe Kerfoot, P.E., electrical engineers at Rosendin Electric, explains valuable insights and provides guidance for design engineers to help them re-imagine essential system design practices.

Description - Integrated Transformer Vacuum Fault Interrupter (VFI) technology coupled with secondary overcurrent sensing, arc-light sensing and modern relaying significantly reduces secondary incident arc energy. Pre-designed and factory-tested, the Arc Reduction Vacuum Fault Interrupter (AR-VFI) transformer protection system uses this method to provide integral overcurrent protection on secondaries up to 6000 A. This webinar, given by Sam Reed, principal engineer – new product development at Eaton, discusses how AR-VFI technology improves fault clearing time, equipment reliability, and personnel safety with integrated equipment.

Description - In this webinar, given by Lionel Ng at ABB in Italy, we look at the IEC 60909 standard. This standard deals with short circuit currents in three-phase AC systems. Calculation of short circuit currents is fundamental in all electrical designs to help protect the system, equipment, and people. Understanding short circuit currents also enables designers to size the components correctly and accurately. Attendees will learn how short circuit currents can be defined manually, with the help of tables, or with the help of calculation software. The examples in this webinar mainly focus on low voltage systems.
