Arc Flash Hazard Study – The Basics

Arc flash hazard is a huge concern in areas where you are operating medium voltage (1kV – 34kV) and low voltage (less than 1kV) equipment. Mostly because, when you inadvertently initiate a fault, an arc flash ensuing it releases enormous amount of heat energy. The composition of this arc includes molten bits of copper or aluminium busbar or cable.

Per Unit System – An Introduction

Fundamental to any power system analysis is the know-how of per unit systems. This article, part of a series of articles, will explain step by step how to calculate these parameters for any component anywhere in the power system. Let’s begin with the purpose.

The Power Flow Crux

The electrical power grid operates in equilibrium. The power supply from the generator matches the demand levied by the end-users. The flow of power to enable this demand-supply equilibrium over the transmission lines (T-lines) is governed by the following conditions.
