Arc Flash Analysis

Services >

In Australia, no specific Australian standard exists for arc flash calculations. As this is the case, IEEE 1584 is used to establish the incident energy and arc flash boundary for electrical equipment installed. PPE categories will be selected from the calculated incident energy using the Arc Protection PPE matrix, NFPA 70E 2009 Table 130.7(C)(10) Protective Clothing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and Table 130.7(C)(11) Protective Clothing Characteristics. For Coal Mines Arc Flash studies have become a requirement of AS3007 since 2013.
