How to perform arc flash analysis in DC power systems
Direct current (DC) arcing fault incident energy calculations are presented to assess the level of risk involved when working around high current DC apparatus. The proposed procedure allows evaluation of incident energy and arc flash boundaries, while taking into account as many circuit parameters as possible. These parameters include fixed or variable gap length, system voltage, available fault current, equipment configuration, circuit time constant and evaluated threshold energy for a second degree burn.

  1. This is a very useful resource on Arc Flash preventions and risk strategies from ARCAD, INC - I'm impressed. Needless to say I work in the last line of defense providing appropriate PPE provision in case all goes wrong but even so I would strongly advocate that complete strategies and guidelines are put in place and followed to fully minimise the risks.
