7:15 - Jeff Sobczyk, JEO Consulting – Updated IEEE Standard on Calculating ARC Flash and How It Will Impact Your Facility
The industry standard is to have your facility arc flash study updated every 5 years.  Newly released revisions to the industry arc flash calculation standard make it so that you can’t just dust off your old arc flash report and verify if it’s still good.  The revised industry standards have gotten considerably more complex and have introduced additional field investigative requirements and calculation parameters into the arc flash computations.  This informative presentation will walk you through why it’s beneficial to implement the new standard in your next arc flash study and what your engineers will need to focus on in order to properly perform your next arc flash study.
