with low-voltage MCC equipment than with medium-voltage MCCs and switchgear. Modern protection and control systems derived from medium-voltage (1,000 V to 38 kV) and high-voltage (38 to ... improving the reliability of protective devices essential for arc-flash hazard mitigation. The recognition of arc flash as a unique electrical hazard has ...

Rapidly detects and clears even the most difficult forms of arc flash events in low-voltage (LV) and medium-voltage (MV) electrical assemblies. High-resistance grounding (HRG) Limits the magnitude of current during a phase-to-ground fault, thus reducing arc flash energy to increase personnel and equipment protection.

Thus, the resistance grounded system will be more reliable and have less arc flash energy and equipment damage when a line to ground fault occurs. For low voltage systems, the line to ground fault current is limited to less than 50 amperes. The results are similar to the medium voltage systems; the low level of line to

Section 230.95 requires that ground-fault protection of equipment be provided for solidly grounded wye electric services of more than 150 volts to ground but not exceeding 1000 volts phase-to-phase for each service ...

Arc flash is a short-circuit through ionized gas (normally air) between one live part and ground, or between live parts. Arc flash can be characterized as an electrical explosion because of the speed, power, heat, and pressure of the phenomenon. Arc flash events can be caused by human errors, equipment failure, poor connection, animals, dirt, etc.

transformer secondary and the line side of the LV main breaker. The arc flash mitigation solution discussed in this paper is unique in the industry. The solution consists of a MV High Speed Grounding Switch (HSGS), an arc flash relay on the LV side and MV current limiting fuses. This system can reduce
