Emergency Power Services: The Importance of Arc Flash Analysis

An arc flash occurs due to low impedance between phase busbars or between a phase busbar and neutral or ground. Small flashes cause limited damage and are rebuffed by protective equipment, but large flashes can cause an emergency. Often referred to as “explosions” due to their ejection power, these flashes can kill workers and damage […]
