Arc flash hazards is a dangerous condition associated with the possible release of energy caused by an electric arc. These incidents can cause severe injury including burns, and each year impact the lives and safety of thousands of people. As awareness of arc flash hazards grows, electrical industry standards and regulations continue to evolve.

Now that the 2014 edition of NFPA 70: National Electrical Code (NEC) has been published, this will take a look at what's new in the requirement in Section 240.87: Arc Energy Reduction. This session will focus on the requirements and intent of the code change to ensure arc flash safety in the electrical industry.

Electrical engineers are required to design systems to meet NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, and arc flash mitigation is frequently top-of-mind.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand new code requirements, including NEC 2014 Section 240.87.
  • Learn how to perform an arc flash hazard analysis.
  • Know the arc flash mitigating design strategies and how to implement them.
  • Learn the pros and cons of different types of arc flash mitigation techniques.
