How to perform an Arc Flash Study
2 DAYS - 1.6 CEUs
This 2 day class by Jim Phillips, P.E begins by discussing OSHA and NFPA 70E requirements for electrical safety and arc flash protection. It is designed to train students to understand electrical safety including shock and arc flash hazards as well as providing the hazard assessment.
You will be shown the effects of short circuit current and protective device clearing time on the hazard. See how to determine appropriate protective clothing and personal protective equipment. Learn how the information from an arc flash hazard calculations study can be used to complete the energized electrical work permit required by NFPA 70E. Discuss what information is really required on arc flash labels.
Jim will then show how to perform arc flash hazard calculations and studies based on IEEE 1584 – IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard. From data collection through the IEEE calculations, all the way to developing results and recommendations, it’s all there.
Using a series of calculation worksheets that Jim has developed, he shows you how to calculate the arcing short circuit current, incident energy for AC and DC arc flash as well as the arc flash boundary. Also learn about the NESC requirements and the importance of the working distance, and equipment type. Jim also takes you behind the scenes to learn about the latest arc flash research and testing both in the United States as well as Europe.
POWER SYSTEM ENGINEERING
5 DAYS - 3.2 CEUs
This course by has become the industry standard that defines the Crash Course in electrical power systems. The course is made up of five of Jims most popular classes including Power System Design 1 and 2, Short Circuit Analysis, Coordination Studies and Harmonic and Power Factor.
MEDIUM VOLTAGE POWER SYSTEMS
2 DAYS - 1.6 CEUs
The backbone of many electric power systems is the medium voltage distribution system. Typically operating at voltages ranging from 2,400 to 34,500 Volts, voltage stress, corona, surges and protection of equipment all create unique challenges in design, equipment selection, operation and engineering.
This 2 day program by Jim Phillips, P.E. takes you through the basics of medium voltage power systems including components, equipment, design and operation problems as well as protection of medium voltage systems.
