    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1309 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Personal safety and protection of the environment are the main design criteria for all electric power distribution systems. The engineer responsible for power system design must take into account the loads to be supplied and available power sources to ensure the required system availability and robustness. The system must enable routine maintenance to be carried out to avoid a reduction in perform... View full abstract»

  • Prevention Is Better Than a Cure: Electric Shock Injuries from Static Electricity Discharges

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):57 - 60
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1023 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Most people are aware of electrostatic discharges at two extremes: 1) the annoying shock from static accumulation from sliding across an automobile seat or shuffling across a carpet and 2) the highly dangerous and destructive energy discharge in lightning strikes. Between these two extremes are the static discharges from manufacturing operations that can cause shock injuries. Hazards of static ele... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (13)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1095 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In today's power distribution systems, the protection methods do not provide full selectivity and instantaneous fault clearing for expected fault current, including lower-magnitude arcing currents simultaneously. This article discusses two methods that may change that. The first method is a selectivity analytical technique useful with many circuit breaker (CB) trips currently available in the indu...
