  • Integrating Arc-Flash Analysis: A Look at Protective Device Coordination

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):14 - 23
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    This article introduces a novel method for integrating arc-flash analysis with protective device coordination on time-current coordination (TC) plots. A new concept, called the human damage curve (HDC), is included in the coordination process, which relates directly to calories/cm2 energy levels of personal protective equipment (PPE). Each curve in an HDC family holds to a set of consis... View full abstract»

    Cold ironing power system design requires unique components to supply shore power to ships for cold ironing operation. Currently, the development of new standards is in progress, and operating procedures are being written to maximize electrical safety, standardization of the process, and interchangeability from one location to another. This article describes the power system design, including a po... View full abstract»

    In low-voltage systems, ground faults do not necessarily involve the actual earth, but fault currents may return to the source via conductors. Such conductors, which provide a clear path toward the source, are defined in the applicable codes and technical standards as equipment grounding conductors or protective conductors.

    There has been significant progress in arc-flash research in recent years, but there has been little focus on how the internal configuration of equipment affects the released incident energy. The relationship between low-voltage motor control center (MCC) unit configurations and incident energy exposure resulting from an arc flash is examined in this article. Testing was conducted using actual MCC... View full abstract»

    Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a common analytical tool used in product development, manufacturing, and operations management to understand potential failure modes inclusive of the severity and likelihood of those failures. FMEA helps practitioners identify potential failure modes based on past experience and analysis. Once potential failures are understood, design changes or practice... View full abstract»

  • Safety for the Nonelectrical Worker: Extending Electrical Safety Programs to Incude All On-Site Workers

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (912 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Roughly 50% of electrical incidents involve workers whose primary function is not electrical in nature. As a result, companies have been encouraged to "address electrical safety for all workers and not just workers whose job responsibilities involve working on or near energized electrical circuits" [1]. In this article, a program is presented that includes specific briefings to nonelectrical worke... View full abstract»
