Up-to-date analysis methodologies and practical mitigation for amajor electrical safety concern

Arc Flash Hazard Analysis and Mitigation is thefirst book to focus specifically on arc flash hazards and providethe latest methodologies for its analysis as well as practicalmitigation techniques.

Consisting of sixteen chapters, this fully up-to-date handbookcovers all aspects of arc flash hazard calculations and mitigation.It addresses the calculations of short circuits, protectiverelaying, and varied electrical systems configurations inelectrical power systems. It also examines protection systems, including differential relays, arc flash sensing relays, protectiverelaying coordination, current transformer operation andsaturation, and applications to major electrical equipment from thearc flash point of view. Current technologies and strategies forarc flash mitigation are explored. Using the methodology, analysis, and preventive measures discussed in the book, the arc flash hazardincident energy can be reduced to 8 cal/cm2 or less for the new andexisting electrical distribution systems.

This powerful resource:

  • Features the most up-to-date arc flash analysismethodologies
  • Presents arc flash hazard calculations in dc systems
  • Supplies practical examples and case studies
  • Provides end-of-chapter reviews and questions
  • Includes a Foreword written by Lanny Floyd, a world-renownedleader in electrical safety who is DuPont's Principal Consultant onElectrical Safety and Technology

Arc Flash Hazard Analysis and Mitigation is amust-have guide for electrical engineers engaged in design, operation, and maintenance, consulting engineers, facilitymanagers, and safety professionals.
