Recent Trends and Innovations in Arc Flash Assessments

Recent Trends and Innovations in Arc Flash Assessments

Author: Velimir Lackovic

New equipment and innovations have led to significant improvements in arc flash systems and have created a safer work environment for the staff involved in maintenance of electrical equipment. In addition, some older established methods are being used to make equipment safer. Coordination of instantaneous devices in series and the development of current limiting low voltage molded case circuit breakers are a new field. There are also innovations in the construction of low – voltage MCCs, a new breed of low – voltage trip programmers, and remote racking of MCC buckets.

This course is appropriate for engineers with a desire to learn about the recent trends and innovations in the arc flash assessment. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address low and medium voltage protection principles, arc flash hazard reduction techniques and new equipment design features that are used for arc flash reduction.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty (30) questions to earn 6 PDH credits.
