Advanced Analysis of Arc Flash Incident Energy with Protective Device Coordination Study

Webinar Description

This webinar introduces to the industry the concept of arc flash incident energy evaluation with the protection and coordination study. The anticipated detection of arc flash problems, usually found during the arc flash study, significantly reduces costly modifications and mitigation equipment. This time-saving capability limits the number of scenarios or even entirely removes the need for an arc flash study. The automatic evaluation also includes arc-resistant switchgear ratings based on ANSI C37.20.7. 

Arc Flash Auto-Evaluation is based on the brand-new concept of C-area plots. C-area plots are a way to reference a target incident energy using thousands of input parameter combinations which aim to find worst-case conditions. This webinar includes a live demo of the automatic evaluation of C-area plots and equipment damage points, report viewers, and global evaluation rulebooks.

You will learn: 

  • How to apply arc flash auto evaluation during coordination studies.
  • How to apply the tool to commonly neglected parts of the low-voltage systems near the 240 V, 125 kVA limits of IEEE 1584-2018.
  • How to configure the global options to automatically update maximum and minimum bolted fault currents and generate the C-area plots.

The webinar broadcast starts at 09:00 AM, PDT. (Los Angeles)

This webinar will also be broadcast 10:00 AM, GMT+1 on October 7. Click here to register.
