The model includes the following: • • • • • • • Three-phase voltages in the range of 208 to 15,000 V phase-to-phase Frequencies of 50 or 60 Hz Bolted fault current in the range of 700 to 106,000 A Grounding of all types and ungrounded Equipment enclosures of commonly available sizes Gaps between conductors of 13 to 152 mm Faults involving all three phases Arcing Voltage Arc voltage is somewhat more difficult to determine. 84 V/cm). )>> Arc voltages start low and tend to rise. )>> Arc voltage is proportional to arc length.

These electrons are pushed out of their normal orbits and cause the air to become a conductor. This process releases great amounts of heat and light. When an electrical arc occurs, the released electrons are extremely energetic and cause the ╇plasma to expand by pushing against each other. The path of the plasma flow is influenced by electromagnetic force. Electromagnetic fields can act on water molecules in the body in a detectable manner, which is ╇ the basis for medical diagnostic imaging with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner.

5 for voltage equal to or below 1 kV )>> En = normalized incident energy calculated from Eqs. 15 )>> t = arcing time in seconds )>> D = distance from the arc point to the exposed worker (mm) )>> x = distance exponent whose value is dependent on voltage (see IEEE Std 15842002, Table 4 for values of x) Extensive research continues to be performed on the subject of incident arc energy. Practical applications used in the selection of protective equipment are covered in detail in Chap. 3. )>> First-degree burns.
