IEEE:Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, responsible for writing standards that define power systems coordination/arc flash best practices.
NFPA 70E:National Fire Protection Association, wrote 70E, which defines the requirements for safe work practices to protect personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards.
OSHA:Occupational Safety and Health Administration, arc flash hazards are cited primarily under standard 29 CFR.
TEGG:a 6-point NPFA 70E program including best-in-class training, incident energy analysis, short circuit coordination, personal protective equipment and electrical preventative maintenance.
Arc Flash:a dangerous condition associated with the possible release of energy caused by an electric arc.
Commissioning:A quality-focused process for enhancing the delivery of a project. The process focuses on verifying and documenting that the facility and all of its systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the OPR.
Coordination:with coordinated over-current protection, the faulted or overloaded circuit is isolated by the selective operation of only the OCPD closest to the over-current condition. or - where an orderly shutdown is required to minimize the hazard to personnel and equipment, a system of coordination based on coordinated short-circuit protection and overload indication based on monitoring systems or devices.
Thermal/IR Scanning:used to identify problems, prevent, and predict failures in electrical systems.
Mitigation:to make milder, less severe, or less violent, the potential of an arc flash.
Remediation:correction/replacement of underrated existing equipment.
