IEEE 1584 – Guide For Arc Flash Hazard Analysis

It calculates incident arc energies considering three-phase arcs in enclosures and in air and is based upon empirical equations developed through multiple tests of varying fault cases. With this one can also input the different parameters to obtain the incident energies, boundary information, labels to be placed on equipment and obtain the level of PPE according to the US hazard risk categories listed in the NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®.
