Evaluation of Capacitor Stored Energy Hazardsergy Storage Systems | In Spanish

Webinar Description

NFPA 70E 2021 Article 360 and Annex R introduce new guidelines for working safely around hazardous capacitors.

This webinar will discuss the most important changes to NFPA 70E 2021 including the background and concepts regarding shock, thermal, and arc blast hazards related to capacitor stored energy. The shock risk assessment includes the effect of capacitor discharge time constant and how to establish a safe discharge voltage according to standards such as NEC 2020, CSA 22.1-18, IEEE 18-2012, and IEC 60831-2014. The webinar also provides a high-level overview of the most important changes to NFPA 70E 2021. 

Learn how engineers evaluate the impact of connected and disconnected capacitor energy and calculate arc blast related hazards such as hearing and lung collapse protection boundaries. Print Capacitor Hazard Labels using ETAP 20.5 to comply with the latest additions to NFPA 70E 2021. 

  • Safety guidelines pertaining to hazardous capacitors
  • Compliance per industry standard
  • Stored capacitor energy for connected & disconnected capacitors
  • Determine maximum capacitor voltage & discharge time constant
  • New Capacitor Hazard Evaluation Calculator



The webinar broadcast starts at 12:00 PM, Central Standard Time (CST).
