Arc Flash Resistant Equipment
In Arc Flash Resistant Equipment, you'll learn ...
- Equipment covered by IEEE Guide C37.20.7-2007
- Accessibility types per the IEEE guide and the IEC standard
- Duration ratings and device-limited ratings for arc flash resistant equipment
- Testing according to the IEEE guide
Arc flash resistant equipment may be described as equipment made to withstand the impact of internal arcing fault by meeting the testing 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 an 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 heavily relies on Annex AA of the 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 intended for electrical engineers with a desire to learn more about arc flash resistant equipment. Presented details discuss IEEE and IEC equipment accessibility types, arc resistant ratings and testing procedures according to IEEE standards.
