Foreword

This amendment to IEEE Std 1584-2002 offers guidelines on how to apply the document based on experience gained by users since its publication.

As defined by the IEEE operating procedures, a guide is a document in which alternative approaches to good practice are suggested, but no clear-cut recommendations are made. This guide is intended to be used only by qualified people. The complexities of electrical power system configurations and equipment dictate that, like short-circuit studies and protective-device coordination studies, an arc-flash hazard study should only be undertaken by experienced electrical power system engineers or other well-trained professionals. Those who are not this qualified are encouraged to use a table method to select personal protective equipment (PPE). A set of cautions and disclaimers is provided in the guide and reproduced in the spreadsheet calculator to help users understand the limitations in the technology. Proper PPE based on arc-flash hazard calculations or tables is the last line of defense against arc-flash hazards. Other mitigation techniques, as in the following list, provide a much better defense. A facility owner and employees working on equipment should be aware of all the limitations. The warning labels in rated PPE help to do this. However, users should recognize that following codes, standards, guides, and recommended practices does not guarantee that all arc-flash injuries will be avoided.

De-energizing remains the first choice as a means of achieving an electrically safe working condition and reducing the possibility of injury, but that is not always possible. Also, incidents have occurred during the action of de-energizing equipment to create the safe worlung condition and during switching to re-establish power. For these occasions, an arc-flash hazard analysis and the institution of a PPE program provide great value in reducing the likelihood of injuries in an arc flash.

These studies may identify equipment where the possible incident energy levels are so high that PPE is not available or not recommended. In those cases, operating procedure or engineering design changes may need to be considered to reduce the exposure or incident energy levels. Developing these changes is an important part of implementing a study's results. Examples of some of these changes include the following:

Changing operating procedures to eliminate or minimize the time that two sources of power are tied together

Resetting or replacing existing protective devices to get faster fault clearing times

Adding fast operating relays or current-limiting devices to reduce fault clearing times

Adding remote racking and operating capability

Installing arc-resistant switchgear
