The Art of Compromise: Arc Flash, PPE, and Personnel Safety

Arc flash studies have identified electrical equipment in need of an upgrade to reduce arc flash incident energy levels, but what happens when funding becomes limited and spreads out mitigation projects over a series of years? 

Are there ways we can modify existing relay settings to temporarily improve incident energy levels until major mitigation projects can be funded and executed?

We took a glance at methods and compromises that can be used with reduced project costs and reduced impact to PPE requirements, client approach policies, or the overall coordination of the electrical system.
