Your company, a manufacturer, happens to have a large standarsd of very competent engineers, in the power system engineering group, who can perform this work! They require arc flash analysis. Certified test data on insula. If more than 4 but less than 10 of the insulators fail to eemqc the requirements of paragraph 4.
Design tests on insulators of new design shall be made iii accordance with paragraphs 9. Other factors in arc flash hazards are:. Five insulators shall be selected at random and tested in accordance with paragraph 5.
Transverse Strength, Pounds 2.
What is EEMAC?
Is terminology an issue for you? Randomly select an independent growth rate for the. The standard color of the glaze shall be brown. Blogger Directory View All Posts. Test specimens shall be selected from insulators destroyed in other tests and tested in accordance with Section 5. Sampling, Inspection and Tests 9. Is the terminology really so confusing? Its goal is to prevent damage and injury. Although we manufacturers sometimes propose arc flash analyses as a service, they are usually performed by a ee,ac engineer.
In a nutshell, arc flash analysis specifies what to do to ensure the safety of personnel when an arc flashes on site. Low-frequency Dry Flashover, Ky b. They have very much to do with a particular installation — how it is to be operated, for example, and what it is to be used for. Not to prevent the arc fault flash itself. Other factors in arc flash hazards are: Failure of the average strength of the five insulators to meet the strength requirements given on the applicable data sheet or failure of any one insulator to equal 85 per cent of that strength requirement shall constitute failure of the lot to meet this standard.
And, should an arc fault occur, to contain it within a single compartment in the cubicle and divert the hot gases away from personnel. Feb 13, 18, 19 – Design Project: Nor do any standards govern arc flashes. Reply This was a very good article. This was a very good article. January 2, 9. An analysis assesses how intense an arc flash may be in a particular installation by factoring in parameters like those I listed above short-circuit current, relay settings, fault current flow, etc.
The text, data sheets, and data sheet drawings supplement each other and shair be considered as parts of these standards.
Have you struggled stanvards arc flash and resistance? Three insulators shall he selected at random and tested in accordance with Section 4. The entire surface shall be relatively free from imperfections.
There lies the only femac terminological confusion: Failure of more than 10 insulators total from both the tirst and second samples shall constitute failure of the lot to meet this standard.
Penetration of the dye into the body of the dielectric shall constitute failure of the lot to meet this standard.
To that end we put switchgear through arc-fault tests. Math 8 HW standads Dilations. Direct exposure to such heat radiation can cause severe burn injuries.
EEMAC STANDARDS FOR WET—PROCESS PORCELAIN
Standarsd flashes have little to do with devices. Featured Bloggers Frederic Abbal. As you pointed out, Manufacturers cannot control the way equipment is used. An internal arc fault is one that occurs inside switchgear. The marking shall be legible and durable.
So, when customers ask for the arc flash characteristics of our medium-voltage switchgearI scratch my head. Three insulators shall be selectcd at random and tested in accordance with Section 4.
