Dear Friends,

Someone can inform if we have a definitive solution for calculations of the incident energy for enclosure arc in voltages above 15kV.

Tks...

ArcPro with multipliers.

Yes for sure. ArcPro with multipliers. They did substantial work up to 33kV with EPRI.

A common question that I receive regularly is will the new IEEE 1584 Second Edition go beyond 15 kV. The new version (not out yet) will continue to have 15 kV as the upper limit so ArcPro is the alternative. Some would say use the Lee model. Although it was a great theoretical effort by Ralph Lee in the 1980's, it is NOT the alternative as it aims unrealistically high - especially at higher voltages. Arc Pro is a viable alternative.

Did I miss something here? I thought NOBODY has done any arc measurements above 15 kV and was soundly chastised for suggesting that EPRI did, and I even went back and read and verified that this is the case for myself? Did I miss something more recent?
