Arc Flash Analysis
Arc flash analysis extends well beyond the scope of IEEE 1584 and NFPA 70E methodology for transmission, distribution, industrial and renewable energy systems. For many years, the industry has been lacking an ‘all-in-one’ solution for performing AC and DC arc flash analysis on LV, MV, and HV systems.
This webinar will provide an overview of the fundamental differences between the IEEE 1584-2018 and existing arc flash methods. To better understand how the 2018 model combines empirical and arc flash physical behavior, the presentation will cover background and insights into the model development validation.
ETAP Arc Flash IEEE 1584-2018
ETAP Arc Flash Analysis software is used to perform arc flash analysis for systems from 0.208 kV to 15 kV in accordance with IEEE 1584-2018 “IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations.” The software determines the incident energy and arc flash boundary values required to comply with NEC equipment labeling. It also provides hazard evaluation for shock protection and arc flash PPE according to NFPA 70E 2018.
