Arc Flash Hazard Calculations in DC Systems
In Arc Flash Hazard Calculations in DC Systems, you'll learn ...
- Causes of short - circuit currents in DC electrical systems
- Four types of DC short circuit current sources
- How to perform DC short circuit current and arc flash hazard calculations
- Breakers and fuses designed to mitigate short circuit current and arc flash hazards
IEEE 1584 standard does not discuss arc flash hazard calculations in DC systems. Standard NFPA-70E- 2000 provides a short calculation method. Therefore, the current literature is lacking calculations of arc flash hazards in DC systems. The necessary calculation steps are very similar to calculations in AC systems, however there are marked differences, particularly with respect to protection, cause of short - circuit currents in the DC electrical systems, and the current interruption devices in DC systems, which function fast to limit the energy let - through.
This course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand DC system fault calculations followed by DC system arc flash calculations. Presented details cover issues related to DC fault calculation, DC protection equipment and DC arc flash energy calculation. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to address DC system fault calculation methodologies, basics of DC protection equipment and methods to calculate incident energy in DC systems.
