The Arc Flash Analysis program is a completely integrated module that solves multiple scenarios to determine worst-case arc flash energy levels. The Arc Flash calculation software module also produces professional reports and high quality arc flash
hazard labels at a press of a button.
The Arc Flash Analysis module also includes comprehensive single phase and three phase arc flash calculations as well as an invaluable arc flash analyzer tool to summarize results from the arc flash study.
DC Arc Flash and ArcFault are offered as a separate modules.
ETAP provides an all-in-one software solution to perform AC and DC arc flash analysis on LV, MV, and HV systems. Perform arc flash analysis and evaluate incident energy and arc flash damage points during the protection and coordination study significantly reducing the number of scenarios required.

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 Analysis automatically estimates the Incident Energy released in the event of an arc fault and determines the required Flash Protection Boundary.
ETAP makes the creation of multiple configurations and operating modes for the system being modeled easy once the model has been created and then the available incident energy for each bus in each configuration can be determined and compared. The worst case incident energy and corresponding personal protective equipment (PPE) can be put on arc flash labels to be applied to the equipment.
ETAP 7.1 now includes the ability to customize and link arc flash electrical safety labels using Microsoft Word. This webinar explains step-by-step instructions.
Compliance requirements of NFPA 70E - 2015 Edition using ETAP 14 Arc Flash Analysis: Compliance with the Latest Standards and Guidelines, New AC and DC Arc Flash Modes, Study Case, and Interface Arc Flash Analyzer Enhancement, New Sequence-of-Operation for IEC Arc Flash, New Enclosure Isolation for Main & Load Protective Devices, New Correction Factors for Arc Current and Incident Energy.
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.

Introduction to ETAP Arc Flash Hazard Analysis module with instructions on how to setup arc flash calculations.
This article presents different methods for assessing the hazards of high- and low-voltage 1-phase equipment.
One common question being asked is how to determine the hazard level associated with 1-Phase (1-P) Arc Flash (AF) incidents. There is very little information about this type of circuit in the available guidelines such as CSA Z462-08, NFPA 70E 2009 & IEEE 1584 2002.
If the right risk level is not properly determined, we run the risk of over-protecting or under-protecting personnel that are working on this type of electrical system. The objective of this article is to present different methods for assessing the hazards of high and low voltage 1-P equipment, and to justify the results taking into consideration the behavior of arc faults at different voltage levels.
It's important to understand the Hazard/Risk Category levels listed in NFPA 70E, but just as important to understand the limitations of these tables.
This article explains how arc flash software is essential to identifying and analyzing high-risk arc flash areas, so you can help keep your electrical staff safer.
