Arc Flash Fundamentals
Protect your employees from unnecessary risk while ensuring regulatory compliance.
This course is designed to teach the fundamental elements of how an arc flash analysis is performed and explain the impact of having such a study performed at your facility. Engineer instructors with years of power system analysis experience will explore the history of arc flash analysis, the basis for requirements for an analysis, and the resultant data of having an analysis performed. Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of why having an arc flash analysis is advantageous in the overall scheme of electrical safety for your facility, as well
as insight in to how your facility’s electrical system must be analyzed and tested to maximize your reliability and safety measures.
During the in-class time, you will learn:
- The basics of arc flash and what you need to understand before performing work on any electrical equipment;
- Which industries are affected by arc flash analysis requirements;
- Codes and standards (IEEE 1584, NFPA 70E, and NEC);
- What types of injuries can be inflicted in an arc flash explosion;
- Selecting appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and how arc flash PPE must be applied for maximum electrical safety;
- The specific steps in the performance of an arc flash analysis;
- Arc flash incident energy ratings;
- Methods for mitigating arc flash danger for particular types of electrical apparatus;
- Current requirements for electrical apparatus labeling for electrical safety compliance.
