The module is compliant with industry-recognized standards and methods to perform arc flash hazard calculations for industrial, distribution and transmission systems. These standards are:
For the arc flash analysis in distribution and transmission systems, algorithms are available to cater for line-to-ground faults, which represent about 80% of the faults occurring on a distribution system. This added functionality facilitates the evaluation of arc flash hazards on any part of any network.
The new algorithms are based on:
The bus data of any network created with Eaton's CYME software can be supplemented with arc flash related information such as working distance, bus gap, connected equipment and exposed circuit enclosed in a box or in open air. In addition, the module calculates the maximum bolted short-circuit levels at the desired work place (bus) for arc flash hazard calculations.
The program generates warning labels that are ready to be printed and affixed to electrical equipment. Different label templates are available, and it is also possible to create custom warning labels.
These warning labels include all the necessary information such as:
