This new edition of the definitive arc flash reference guide, fully updated to align with the IEEE’s updated hazard calculations
An arc flash, an electrical breakdown of the resistance of air resulting in an electric arc, can cause substantial damage, fire, injury, or loss of life. Professionals involved in the design, operation, or maintenance of electric power systems require thorough and up-to-date knowledge of arc flash safety and prevention methods. Arc Flash Hazard Analysis and Mitigation is the most comprehensive reference guide available on all aspects of arc flash hazard calculations, protective current technologies, and worker safety in electrical environments. Detailed chapters cover protective relaying, unit protection systems, arc-resistant equipment, arc flash analyses in DC systems, and many more critical topics.
Now in its second edition, this industry-standard resource contains fully revised material throughout, including a new chapter on calculation procedures conforming to the latest IEEE Guide 1584. Updated methodology and equations are complemented by new practical examples and case studies. Expanded topics include risk assessment, electrode configuration, the impact of system grounding, electrical safety in workplaces, and short-circuit currents. Written by a leading authority with more than three decades’ experience conducting power system analyses, this invaluable guide:
Provides the latest methodologies for flash arc hazard analysis as well practical mitigation techniques, fully aligned with the updated IEEE Guide for Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations
Explores an inclusive range of current technologies and strategies for arc flash mitigation
Covers calculations of short-circuits, protective relaying, and varied electrical system configurations in industrial power systems
Addresses differential relays, arc flash sensing relays, protective relaying coordination, current transformer operation and saturation, and more
Includes review questions and references at the end of each chapter
Part of the market-leading IEEE Series on Power Engineering, the second edition of Arc Flash Hazard Analysis and Mitigation remains essential reading for all electrical engineers and consulting engineers.
