Arc Flash Resistant Equipment

Arc Flash Resistant Equipment

Author: Velimir Lackovic

Arc flash resistant equipment is designed to withstand the impact of internal arcing fault as defined by the requirements of IEEE Guide C37.20.7-2007. In the 1970s, an interest started in Europe in assessing electrical equipment under internal arcing, which lead to development of the IEC standard. This research spread to North America and was used as a foundation for the EEMAC G14-1 procedure. The development of the IEEE standard relies on Annex AA of IEC standard and adopts many of the refinements originated in EEMAC G14-1 procedure. IEC 62271 – 200 defines the requirements for factory assembled metal – enclosed switchgear and control gear for alternating currents at rated voltage above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV. It includes indoor and outdoor assemblies and frequencies up to and including 60 Hz.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to find out more about arc flash resistant equipment. It presents details on IEEE and IEC equipment accessibility types, arc resistant ratings and testing procedures according to IEEE standards. Upon successful completion, engineers will have a good understanding of the usage of arc flash resistant equipment and its proper application.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 3 PDH credits.
