Arc flash hazard analysis of a coal-fired power station
conference contributionposted on 28.08.2018, 00:00 by J Gould, Peter Wolfs
This paper begins with the observation that arc flash presents a considerable safety and operational hazard to any site with electrical reticulation. Managing the hazard is key to ensuring the safety of workers and minimizing the downtime of plant and equipment. Different standards available for quantifying the hazard are examined and applied to measure the hazard at a coal-fired power plant in the Central Queensland region. The final section discusses the outcome of performing arc flash analysis and the benefits of such a study.
