During the usage of the DGUV Information (BGI ) to determine the necessary protection level of the PPE against electric arcs are the information. – Thermal hazards from electric fault arc Guide to the selection of personal protective equipment for electrical work (bisher: BGI/GUV-I E). *The representative selection does not replace a risk assessment according to BGI transformer output. (kVA) tripping time of the protective device (ms).

There are no corresponding incident energy values measured during the “box test” and the Class system does not have any listed attribute that could be used for selecting a protection class. Specification standards for product approval and selection. During the usage bgj the DGUV Information BGI to determine the necessary protection level of the PPE against electric arcs are the information about short-circuit current, grid voltage, arc burning time, installation construction form and the working distance necessary.
Instructions for practical application with practical examples. This can reveal different results. Especially for the working area of public electric energy supply, as well as for widespread industry grids is this fact associated 588 a considerable extra effort at the hazard assessment.
The simplified method allows a small amount of specific installation knowledge, works therefore with higher safety additions. Determination of system electric arc energy in the event of a fault. To this end, maintenance and repair work must be performed in electrical installations and networks.
Besides the arc energy, the required test level of the PPE bgl electric arc will be shown as:. No registered users and 0 guests. Procedures for selecting PPEgS.
bgu Parameters and risk analysis of thermal hazards to persons related to electric arcing. Electric arcs are not only induced by short circuiting, but can also occur between two current-carrying components, when they are separated from each other e. While an electric arc flash is rare in the normal working environment, its occurrence cannot be ruled out completely.
The wide use of electrical energy in all areas of life leads to higher requirements on the safety and reliability of power supply systems. Since these installations and networks frequently cannot be disconnected for technical and organisational reasons, work must be performed under live conditions.
The specific method is more complex, therefore certain saftey additions can be reduced. German Social Accident Insurance e. The second test is known as Class 2 and uses a 7, Amp current at Volts. If the material or assembly passes the first arc test, it is classified as “Class 1” If it passes the second test, it is classified as Class 2.
The result ggi your calculation will be shown as a integral component of a hazard assessment. Mon Oct 26, 1: Energy parameters for thermal hazards to persons related to electric arcing. Thank you Jim for such complete answer. High intensity electromagnetic radiation, particularly in the ultraviolet UV and infrared IR radiation bands, but also in the visible light band, which can lead to irreversible damage to the eyes and skin.
Examples of work locations for determining transmission factor k T. This guideline describes that persons working on or in the vicinity of live parts of electrical installations are generally exposed to the risk of arc faults — for example caused by short-circuits or maloperation.
Moreover, an overview of PPE selection is included in the ISSA International Social Security Association Guideline big the selection of personal protective equipment when exposed to the thermal effects of an electric fault arc 2nd edition Therefore, companies are trying to prevent interruption and failure of the energy supply.
Imprint About us Publisher: You can also choose between a simplified and a precise calculation method. Do anyone knows about a arc flash calculation software that use DGUV method?
Thermal hazards from electric fault arc Guide to the bbi of personal protective equipment for electrical work bisher: Class 1 or Class 2 to use. To prevent interruption and failure of the energy supply, installations must be protected and maintenance and repair work must be performed.
The first test, bhi as Class 1, uses a 4, Amp short circuit current at Volts to develop the arc from the box.
This work may include live cleaning or refilling cable ends, but also disconnection, protection against re-connection and verifying that the installation is dead. A dialogue orientated menu guidance and a data bank supports a preselection for different parameters and installation requirements e.
One problem with the classification method was how to determine which Class is necessary for suitable protection of the electrical worker. Persons working on or in the vicinity of live electrical equipment are, in principle, exposed to hazards associated with electric fault arc.
For this purpose, tested high-quality products are indispensable. In this context, it must be observed that voltages up to 1, V a.
Simply basing a Class on 4 kA and 7 kA did not provide a suitable criteria for application guidance. Because doing manually or using excel spreadsheet is very dificult and not recommended for complex electrical networks. The calculation method was developed by a group of well regarded industry experts from Germany.

Depending on the electrical network and equipment configuration, electric arcing can be extremely hazardous:.
Low voltage | DEHN United Kingdom
Standardisation of PPE against the thermal effects of electric fault arcing. Page 1 of 1. Full disclosure and disclaimer: Size and expansion of the operated grid determined essential the amount of working places which has to be considered at 51888 hazard assessment.
This supports the calculation of the electric arc energy, if the necessary value for the short-circuit current does not exist. On the one hand for the precise method can be arc protection class 1 bgo, on the other hand the simplified method can demand class 2 for the same working place. More information in PDF format: BSD Arc Flash Software During the usage of the DGUV Information BGI to determine the necessary protection level of the PPE against electric arcs are the information about short-circuit current, grid voltage, arc burning 51888, installation construction form and the working distance necessary.
