    This paper summarizes arc-flash calculation results in identifying some of the difficulties in translating arc-flash calculations into real-world improvements in safety. This article addresses the following: design considerations, operating considerations, maintenance considerations, and numerous equipment specification issues that can greatly affect the amount of incident energy a worker is exposed to. Arc-flash exposure can often be reduced while electrical designs are still on paper. View full abstract»

    This article will discuss various methods that have been used to reduce the incident energy levels in an existing electrical system is to review and modify the overcurrent protection settings. Specific solutions implemented at a large chemical manufacturing facility are presented. The solutions include equipment upgrades, overcurrent protection modifications, changes to work methods, and worker training which increase the effectiveness of an already robust safety program.

    This paper deals with several identical turbine-generator sets, rated 13.8 kV, 29 MVA, for powering three separate floating offshore platforms. This article describes the generator sets testing program, the series of events leading up to the failure, a credible analysis of the failure, the steps taken to prevent future incidents, and conclusions regarding testing prior to acceptance of generator sets. A key lesson from this case is that even when electrical and mechanical equipment are being operated under the most controlled of environments, the element of risk is still present. Prior to conducting these types of tests on the vendor's test stands, the vendor should provide documentation that routine maintenance and testing has been performed. View full abstract»

    Proper application of grounding systems, signal isolation, electrical safety, and power quality are key to the successful installation and operation of any electrical and data system, whether in a building or a plant. This paper necessitates an effective data quality and grounding design that considers the neutral, power grounding, bonding, shielding, and transient protection. With consistent design, installation, and maintenance of the grounding system, noise disturbances can be controlled. View full abstract»

    This article describes the principles of a training simulator that has been integrated into an electrical network monitoring and control system (ENMCS) and highlights the benefits that it has brought to this chemical plant. The simulator needed for the chemical plant described in this paper was not required to reproduce the dynamic performance of the system but only its static performance. It is possible to add a simulator function described in this paper as a low-cost alternative to a dedicated training simulator. View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1159 KB)  

    This article will address some of the basic concepts for developing a training program that would be needed for qualifying electrical maintenance employees. The typical method utilized for developing such an effective training program is the systematic approach to training (SAT) and instructional systems design (ISD) methodology. The analysis phase of the ISD will be the primary focus of this article and will address several key elements which include the requirements for a qualified person, as well as conducting a needs assessment, job/task analysis (JTA), and job hazards analysis to develop and maintain an effective and safe work force.

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (681 KB)  

    This paper presents a new approach, termed performance-based maintenance, can utilize past and ongoing equipment maintenance records to prioritize electrical distribution equipment with greater detail. The proposed scheme provides cost savings and useful in identifying equipment that can have a lesser level of future maintenance, or extended maintenance cycles. The integration of multiple inputs is required to minimize the risks associated with improper equipment prioritization. The savings can be redirected to areas such as predictive diagnostics, which can provide for greater improvements in reliability while also reducing the over all spend on maintenance.
