scope:

This guide provides models and an analytical process to enable calculation of the predicted incident thermal energy and the arc-flash boundary. The process covers the collection of field data if applicable, consideration of power system operating scenarios, and calculation parameters. Applications include electrical equipment and conductors for three-phase alternating current (ac) voltages from 208 V to 15 kV. Calculations for singlephase ac systems and direct current (dc) systems are not a part of this guide, but some guidance and references are provided for those applications. Recommendations for personal protective equipment (PPE) to mitigate arc-flash hazards are not included in this guide

Purpose

The purpose of the guide is to enable qualified person(s) to analyze power systems for the purpose of calculating the incident energy to which employees could be exposed during operations and maintenance work. Contractors and facility owners can use this information to help provide appropriate protection for employees in accordance with the requirements of applicable electrical workplace safety standards
