Arc Flash Studies
Arc-Flash Hazard Assessment (Study):
The purpose of the arc flash study is to determine the protective clothing requirements for persons working on live or electrically energized equipment (whenever feasible and possible).
The arc flash calculations combine fault calculations, protective coordination and empirical equations to calculate arc energy that people may be exposed to when working on or near electrical equipment. By calculating the expected arc energy, protective clothing can be specified that can safely protect people with respect to the arc flash exposure within the calculated energy limits of such clothes.
The National Fire Protection Association Guidelines (NFPA 70E) require facility owners to perform an arc flash hazard analysis prior to allowing a worker to perform a task on energized equipment. The arc flash analysis identifies the presence and location of potential hazards and provides recommendations for PPE, boundaries for limited, restricted approach, recommendations for arc flash protection, and safe work practices.
