Arc Flash Resistant Equipment
This online engineering PDH course presents details that address IEEE and IEC equipment accessibility types, arc resistant ratings, and testing procedures according to IEEE standards.
Arc flash resistant equipment may be described as the equipment made to withstand the impact of internal arcing fault by meeting the testing requirements of IEEE Guide C37.20.7-2007. In the 1970s, an interest started in Europe in assessing electrical equipment under internal arcing, which lead to IEC standard. This research spread to North America and was used as a foundation for EEMAC G14-1 procedure. The development of IEEE standard heavily relies on Annex AA of IEC standard and adopts many of the refinements originated in EEMAC G14-1 procedure. IEC 62271-200 defines the requirements for factory assembled metal-enclosed switchgear and control gear for alternating currents at rated voltage above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV. It includes indoor and outdoor assemblies and frequencies up to and including 60 Hz.This 2 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to find out more about arc flash resistant equipment. Upon successful completion engineers will have more information about usage of arc flash resistant equipment and its proper application.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning about the IEEE and IEC equipment accessibility types
- Understanding arc resistant ratings
- Testing according to IEEE standards
- Familiarizing with equipment maintenance procedures
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credits.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
