New IEEE 1584 - 2018 Arc Flash: Incident Energy Calculation Using ETAP

Feb 26, 2019
Houston, United States

The Houston ETAP User Group will meet at Bechtel Corporation.

User Group Description

Social, 5:30 pm 
Networking opportunity for attendees, snacks, and refreshments will be provided.

Presentation, 6:00 pm
This User Group Meeting will provide an overview of the fundamental differences between the new (2018) and existing (2002) arc flash methods. To better understand how the new model combines empirical and arc flash physical behavior, the presentation will cover background and insights into the model development validation. 

The presenter will give an analytical opinion on how arc flash incident energy study changes using the new method, pointing out the differences. 

Learn more:

  • The impact of electrode configurations on the Arc Current, Incident Energy and Arc Flash Boundary
  • How to apply the Enclosure Size Incident Energy Correction Factor
  • How much lower or higher the Arc Current will be
  • What became of the 240 / 208 Volts, 125 kVA guideline and what replaces it
  • The model range of parameters, typical gaps and working distance
  • ETAP implementation of the new model and data collection changes

Round Table Discussion

Who should attend

This event is open to all engineers and managers who are interested in learning about the latest features and capabilities of ETAP. New and experienced ETAP users will gain valuable knowledge and be more productive with ETAP.
