Conductores eléctricos, principios metalúrgicos y sus aplicaciones [Spanish only]

2018 IEEE 38th Central America and Panama Convention (CONCAPAN XXXVIII), 2018

Revision of metallic electrical conductors, their atomic characteristics, uses and applications in electrical conductors, care and product selection for the safest and most approved application.


Case Study Submitting Standard Proposals to the NFPA

IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 2018

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) publishes numerous consensus standards. The association invites the public to submit proposals for revising the existing standards' text. This paper summarizes the NFPA process and describes a case study when the author submitted two proposals for the 2015 edition of the NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Work Place and their eventual ...


Arc Flash Assessment: Two-Case Study of Public Service Facilities in Kalamazoo, Michigan

2018 IEEE International Conference on Electro/Information Technology (EIT), 2018

Arc flash accidents are one of the leading causes of fatal and non-fatal injuries in both construction and general industries. This paper describes the causes of arc flash and the underlying concepts associated with short-circuit fault analysis. These concepts are applied to model and simulate arc flash scenarios based on the NFPA 70E Standard - 2015 Edition. The case studies ...


IEEE Guide for Application of Electric Motors in Class I, Division 2 Hazardous (Classified) Locations

IEEE Std 1349-2001, 2002

This guide was developed to assist individuals, organizations, and suppliers with the application of motors in Class I, Division 2 locations, where flammable gases and vapors may occasionally be present. Three-phase and single-phase ac synchronous and induction electric motors, fractional through very large sizes, are covered in this guide. Primary emphasis is on the use of general-purpose enclosures and precautions ...


Risk Assessment and Your Electrical Safety Program: Performance at the Organizational and Worker Levels

IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, 2016

The 2015 editions of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E and Canadian Standards Association (CSA ) Z462 have integrated occupational health and safety management system and risk management principles. This significant revision changes and advances the electrical safety culture and enables sustainable improvement in the prevention of electrical incidents and injuries. The article discusses how these changes can be integrated ...

  • Arc Flash Assessment: Two-Case Study of Public Service Facilities in Kalamazoo, Michigan

    Arc flash accidents are one of the leading causes of fatal and non-fatal injuries in both construction and general industries. This paper describes the causes of arc flash and the underlying concepts associated with short-circuit fault analysis. These concepts are applied to model and simulate arc flash scenarios based on the NFPA 70E Standard - 2015 Edition. The case studies considered in this project correspond to two public services facilities located in the City of Kalamazoo, Michigan. These studies are simulated using EasyPower software for short circuit and incident energy analyses. The final result of this work was the successful placement of arc-flash labels according to NFPA safety standard for all main system components.

  • IEEE Guide for Application of Electric Motors in Class I, Division 2 Hazardous (Classified) Locations

    This guide was developed to assist individuals, organizations, and suppliers with the application of motors in Class I, Division 2 locations, where flammable gases and vapors may occasionally be present. Three-phase and single-phase ac synchronous and induction electric motors, fractional through very large sizes, are covered in this guide. Primary emphasis is on the use of general-purpose enclosures and precautions against excessive surface temperatures and sparking of rotor bars and enclosure joints. Results of motor surface temperature tests and calculations performed by Working Group Member companies are documented in the guide. Guidance is included for maintaining the life-cycle integrity of motors in Class I, Division 2 locations. Existing codes and standards contain cautionary notes for general-purpose motor applications in Class I, Division 2 areas. Industry experience and established practices are documented for the application of general-purpose motors in Class I, Division 2 locations and guidance is given for applying motors in these locations. This guide is not a specification and is not intended for use as a specification for purchasing motors installed in Division 2 locations.

  • Risk Assessment and Your Electrical Safety Program: Performance at the Organizational and Worker Levels

    The 2015 editions of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E and Canadian Standards Association (CSA ) Z462 have integrated occupational health and safety management system and risk management principles. This significant revision changes and advances the electrical safety culture and enables sustainable improvement in the prevention of electrical incidents and injuries. The article discusses how these changes can be integrated into an organization's electrical safety program and how risk assessment can be performed at both the organizational and the worker levels.
