Successful Arc Flash Studies

Even When Critical Information is Missing

Overview

Arc flash studies can become very complicated when critical data points are unavailable. Pioneer Power Group was contracted to perform an arc flash study for a project that was missing vital information.

Challenges

Data management, access to data, and data retrieval can all be hurdles that need to be resolved when initiating an arc flash study. Our team was recently contracted to perform an arc flash study at a college campus. A major project hurdle was that a substantial amount of critical data was missing.

Our Solution

Our team worked with the client to develop a customized approach to obtain data on the equipment in question. Drawing on established technical expertise, our engineers were able to make the necessary assumptions to fill in the missing data points. By working with the client and on-site contractor, data points from a historical study were used to guide assumptions, provide preliminary calculations, and then the study was refined to close out the project accurately, quickly and cost effectively.

Results

Missing data can seem like an insurmountable problem. With technical expertise and an awareness of how to apply historical study findings, our team was able to resolve these complex project issues and successfully closed out a difficult study. Not only did the client have an up-to-date arc flash study, but we were also able to deliver the study within the context of a historical project perspective.
