An standrds assesses how intense an arc flash may be in a particular installation by factoring in parameters like those I listed above short-circuit current, relay settings, fault current flow, etc. Three insulators shall he selected at random and tested in accordance with Section 4. Your company, a manufacturer, happens to have a large number of very competent engineers, in the power system engineering group, who can perform this eemac Dimensions and Characteristics 5.

Is the terminology really so confusing? Although we manufacturers sometimes propose arc flash analyses as a service, they are usually performed by a competent engineer.

Three insulators shall be selectcd at random and tested in accordance with Section 4. And, should an arc fault occur, to contain it within a single compartment in the cubicle and eemca the hot gases away from personnel.

We manufacturers have no way of knowing the values of such parameters.

Test specimens shall be selected from insulators destroyed in other tests and tested in accordance with Section 5. So, when customers ask for the arc flash characteristics of our medium-voltage switchgearI scratch my head. Insulators paeked in containers conforming to all construction requirements of Canadian Freight classificatioz: Other factors in arc flash hazards are:. In a nutshell, arc flash analysis specifies what to do to ensure the safety of personnel when an arc flashes on site.

An internal arc fault is one that occurs inside switchgear.
