This article is the first in a series that provides a step-by-step approach for performing arc flash calculations.
Arc flash studies and software
An arc-flash study should not be thought of simply as an item that needs to be checked off the list. However, many people still view it this way.
A lot has happened since 2002 when IEEE 1584–IEEE Guide for Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations was first published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
The surface area of the earth is approximately 197 million square miles, and IEEE 1584—IEEE Guide for Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations has been covering more of it every day since it was first published almost 11 years ago.
