  • Arc Flash Hazard AnalysisMay 35, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada

    Arc Flashes Pose Serious Hazards!The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) defines an arc flash as a dangerous condition associated with the release of energy caused by an electric arc. Five to ten arc flash explosions occur daily in electrical equipment in the United States. Injuries from arc flash events range from minor to life threatening to fatal. An arc flash event can, in addition, cause serious equipment damage, resulting in an interruption of facilities operation.An arc flash is essentially an electrical short circuit through the air. In an arc flash incident, concentrated radiant energy explodes outward, resulting in pressure waves, a high-intensity flash, and a superheated ball of gas. The potential for physical injury is extreme.This proven course will show you how to mitigate arc flash hazards.

    Ensure Worker SafetyLearn about new industry standards establishing safe practices to protect electrical workers from the hazards of shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast. These standards include: OSHA29CodeofFederalRegulationsPart1910,SubpartS

    NFPA70-2008,NationalElectricalCode NFPA70E-2009,StandardforElectricalSafetyRequirementsforEmployeeWorkplaces

    IEEEStandard1584-2002,GuideforPerformingArcFlashHazardCalculations

    NESC410A3,whichrequiredthatbyJanuary1,2009,apotentialarcexposureassessment shall be performed

    At this course you will examine these standards, gain an understanding of their significance, and learn how to apply them in your workplace.

    Attend and BenefitThis course will assist plant and design engineers responsible for ensuring a safe work environment in industrial electrical distribution systems. This includes plant, facility, and corporate electrical engineers dealing with one or more company distribution systems and consulting and utility engineers dealing with clients systems. Utility engineers with responsibilitiesforNESCcompliancewillbecome familiarized with arc flash hazard analysis.Experiencedelectricalcontractorswill also benefit from this course.There are a number of computer programs that are excellent tools for the analysis of arc flash hazards. We invite providers tosendliteratureand/ordemoCDsfordistribution to the class.

    Comply with NESC 410A3The2007revisionoftheNationalElectricalSafetyCodeincludesflameretardantclothingasarequirement.Rule410A3states,EffectiveJanuary1,2009,theemployer shall ensure that an assessment is performed to determine potential exposure to an electric arc for employees who work on or near energized parts or equipment. If the assessment determines a potential employeeexposuregreaterthan2cal/cm2exists,theemployershallrequiretheemployee to wear clothing or a clothing system that has an effective rating at least equal to the anticipated level of arc energy.

    Learn How to Perform Arc Flash CalculationsThe arc flash calculations taught in this course will enable you to estimate incident energy exposure from potential arc sources. A bolted fault creates high current that flows through the network. Traditional fault studies are used to select equipment that can withstand and interrupt these short circuit currents. Arcing faults follow a path through a vapor between two conducting materials. The arcing fault current is smaller than a bolted fault current, but the potential for human injury is much greater. Arc flash calculations follow the NFPA 70E2009andIEEE1584-2002methodsfor determining arc flash hazard distance and incident exposure energy. These calculations incorporate short circuit calculations, empirical equations, and protective device operating times.

  • What Students SayI came to hear from experts about how to perform arc flash studies and what to be aware of. The instructors were experts and provided the information I was looking for.

    We have relied on outside consultants over the years. This info provides a very good overview of what others are doing, thinking, and interpreting.

    Great insight from a full spectrum of presenters. Good interaction between students and presenters.

    I was looking for a good introduction to the topic, from both the commercial/industrial and utility perspective. The course exceeded my expectations.

    This has been a very informative and eye-opening experience.

    I feel much more confident that I can move forward with implementation at work.
