Top 5 Consulting-Specifying Engineer articles, May 12-18
Articles about selecting arc flash protection techniques, mitigating harmonics in electrical systems, considerations for building energy modeling, NFPA 110, and kinetic energy storage were the Consulting-Specifying Engineer's most-clicked articles from last week, May 12-18. Were you out last week? Miss something? You can catch up here.
1. Criteria for selecting arc flash protection techniques, Part 2
Conducting an arc flash study to identify hazards and proper PPE and tools is critical in reducing the risk of arc flash incidents.
2. Mitigating harmonics in electrical systems
Although devices using power electronics can produce distortion in electrical distribution systems, it’s up to the engineer to apply effective solutions to mitigate them.
3. Considerations for building energy modeling
Here’s a review of initial energy modeling performed during a project from the interview phase to development of final models used for documenting compliance to energy codes or for LEED certification, through a client’s survey one year after occupancy. Here’s what works, what doesn’t, and what value can be achieved from each step in the process
4. Critical Power: NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems
In the Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s May 8 webcast, Tom Divine, PE, Smith Seckman Reid Inc., and Kenneth Kutsmeda, PE, LEED, AP, Jacobs Engineering, discussed how consulting engineers who specify emergency power equipment for mission critical facilities will be impacted by new code requirements.
5. Kinetic energy storage fulfills a vital role for diverse applications
Data centers, hospitals, and other applications can benefit from the reliability, scalability, low cost of ownership, and other advantages kinetic energy storage systems offer.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on csemeag.com, May 12-18, for articles published within the last two months.
