Timothy L. O'Hearn, PE
This 8-hour course is concerned with reviewing and understanding the analytical process described in the standard 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. The intent of the course is to have the student read the standard which has the purpose 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. This is a practical way to receive continuing educational credits for reading and understanding the content of this important industry standard.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
