Course Summary

Jim Phillips, P.E. is author of the book: Complete Guide to Arc Flash Hazard Calculation Studies and the guide: How to Perform an Arc Flash Study in 12 Steps and is a member of the IEEE 1584 Working Group IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations as well as various other U.S. and international technical committes. His class on How to Perform an Arc Flash Study has become the industry standard for Arc Flash Training. Even instructors from other training companies have attended Jim’s classes to see how it’s done.

He takes you well beyond the usual NFPA 70E and IEEE discussions to show you how to perform arc flash calculations and conduct the detailed arc flash study. You will perform calculations of incident energy, arcing current and arc flash protection boundaries using Jim’s worksheets that are based on IEEE 1584. The course includes details such as K factors, X distance factor and more. Also learn how to make recommendations about reducing the incident energy.
