Let’s Talk Power: The Impact of IEEE 1584 on Arc Flash Studies


IEEE 1584 is the go-to standard used to calculate arc flash levels for just about every arc flash study done in the world. IEEE developed the original version of the standard in 2002 and based it on more than 300 arc flash tests. The new edition is based on almost 2000 additional tests. These tests proved that the original calculations have significant shortcomings.
