About this course

A fault in an electricity system, such as a short circuit, can cause unwanted electric discharge through the air known as an arc flash. It creates dangerous conditions for personnel and equipment around the arc flash location. To reduce the risk of injury, regulations, and standards have been created. This course will be taught following the IEEE 1584 standard.

Arc flash hazards must be evaluated to minimize and mitigate the emerging risks. Short circuit and relay coordination studies are mandatory to gather additional information for this study. By reducing tripping times, the risk of injury can be reduced.

By carrying out arc flash study, incident energy, flash boundary, both arc and fault currents, and safe working distances are calculated. These calculations are made to evaluate the possible risk that workers may be exposed to while working on or near energized electrical equipment. Flash protection boundary distance and incident energy calculations are needed to determine the minimum personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements. By choosing the correct PPE the risk of injury is substantially lower.


After the course, a Q&A session will be held to answer all the questions that you may have.

Calculations will be performed with a power system modeling software EA-PSM Electric. Learn more about the software.
