Methodology for Arc Flash Study

Methodology for Arc Flash Study

  • Accumulation of dirt
  • Corrosion, contamination, or Dielectric Breakdown
  • Faulty equipment
  • Poor maintenance
  • Careless removal or replacement cover and device
  • Misalignment of moving contacts.

An arc flash incident energy analysis is a critical study to ensure employee safety and it is an engineering investigation intended to provide detailed safety information about an equipment or circuit element to qualified workers servicing that equipment.


Stimulation and Analysis

After the modeling stage, we simulate potential arc flash events to assess their severity and develop appropriate countermeasures. Utilizing ETAP 22.5, we gather comprehensive information about incident energy levels, arc flash boundaries, and recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) for workers. Carelabs’ specialists meticulously examine the data produced by the software to ensure accuracy and compliance with relevant electrical standards

Report Generation and Recommendations

Following the simulation and analysis stage, Carelabs compiles a comprehensive report summarizing our findings and recommendations. This report includes a detailed examination of arc flash risks, proposed mitigation techniques, and labeling regulations. Our recommendations are tailored to your specific location’s electrical standards and are based on the data produced by the software.

Recommendations for Compliance and Safety

Carelabs’ studies not only identify risks and suggest ways to mitigate them but also provide guidance on complying with electrical standards and regulations. Our professionals offer helpful advice on implementing the necessary adjustments to enhance workplace safety and ensure adherence to industry standards.

Creating Arc Flash Boundaries

Determining arc flash boundaries is a crucial outcome of an arc flash investigation. Carelabs’ reports contain recommendations for establishing these boundaries in accordance with incident energy levels determined by ETAP 22.5. Establishing clear boundaries enables organizations to effectively communicate potential hazards to staff members and implement suitable safety protocols.
