IEEE 1584-2018 Published – 2018 IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations

In this blog, we will talk about the most important changes in the newly approved IEEE 1584-2018 standard (A guide for performing Arc flash hazard calculations). We have also covered the differences of previous IEEE 1584 Standards.

The newly revised edition of IEEE 1584-2018 standard is approved on 27th September 2018 after conducting of 2000+ tests.

It provides mathematical incident energy model for electrical designers, professionals, managers and facility operators and working personnels in determining the arc-flash hazard boundary and the incident energy to which workers could be exposed during their work on or near electrical equipment in any facility.
