Arc flash analytic software program

The DC Arc Flash Analytic (DCAFA V1.0) by ARCAD

09/07/2011


The DC Arc Flash Analytic (DCAFA V1.0) by ARCAD is a software program for arc flash and shock hazard analysis in dc power systems, including but not limited to photovoltaics, battery banks, rectifiers, and telecommunications equipment. The program takes system voltage, available short circuit current, gap between electrodes, circuit time constant, electrode material, protective device type, and rating of a preset arc duration value, and determines incident energy released by arc flash, hazard risk category at working distance, and flash protection boundary. Among various key capabilities, the DCAFA V1.0 performs analysis using metric or imperial units, saves input configurations and calculation results for future reference or printing, and generates customized arc flash warning labels in electronic formats.
