The Specification of Arc Flash Hazard Calculations Based on IEEE1584.1

If an arc flash hazard is present, the plant assesses the risk and decides on methods to control that risk. Most plants utilize the services of a subject matter expert to perform the arc flash hazard calculation (arc flash engineering study) that is used in the risk assessment process.  
Guidance on this interaction between the plant and the subject matter expert is provided by IEEE1584.1: “Draft Guide for the Specification of Scope and Deliverable Requirements for an Arc-Flash Hazard Calculation Study in Accordance with IEEE Std 1584.” This standard is presently being updated, and the latest developments on the draft will be discussed. The webinar will also provide examples of daily tasks that present an arc flash hazard and work through a risk assessment exercise.
