How we helped
SynchroGrid performed an arc flash analysis on the electrical distribution system for a wind farm operated by Pattern Energy to ensure it complied with NFPA 70E. The study was executed to determine the incident energy levels for 345kV, 34.5kV, and 0.69kV equipment, as well as 208 V AC panels and 125 V DC panels. SynchroGrid engineers performed a flawless arc flash hazard analysis using ETAP 18.1.1 software.
We made arc flash mitigation recommendation when the incident energy exposures were greater than 40 cal/cm2, as mandated by NFPA 70E to ensure employee safety.
