This course gives an overview of arc flash hazards and concisely reports the different causes, nature, findings, directions and processes related with arc flash hazards. In order to address the hazard, it is first required to formulate an understanding of the process.

An electrical arc or an arcing fault is a flashover of electric current through air in electrical devices from one exposed live conductor to another or to ground. Arc flash hazard is the risk of excessive heat exposure and severe burn hurt due to arcing faults in electrical systems. Electrical arcs generate intense heat, sound blast and pressure waves. They have really high temperatures, radiate acute heat, can inflame clothes and induce serious injuries that can be fateful.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of arc flash assessment and adequate hazard planning program. Presented details cover issues related to arc flash nature and causes, NFPA 70E protection boundaries, personal protective equipment, hazard classification, hazard study methods, mitigation measures and arc flash hazard planning program.
