Electrical safety is a fundamental part of any plant strategy, but how well do you know your electrical system? It needs to be evaluated to determine how much incident energy (heat generated from the explosion) can be produced during a worst-case failure.

An arc flash analysis determines the most severe incident energy that can be produced at each location of the distribution system so that there is no doubt what level of arc flash personal protective equipment (PPE) is required to protect workers from receiving burns during an arc flash event.

Join Plant Engineering on March 27 at 1 p.m. CST to discuss the importance of conducting an Arc Flash Analysis and how to properly implement the results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the three steps required in an arc flash analysis.
  • Learn why the NFPA 70E tables only go so far in helping identify the arc flash exposure in YOUR plant.
  • Find out how to maintain your arc flash analysis after it is conducted.
  • Learn why speed is the enemy of an effective arc flash analysis.
