The IEEE Standard 1584-2002 is the recognized standard regarding the calculation of incident energy output from an ac three-phase arcing fault. While that standard does not provide incident energy calculations for the much more common single-phase-to-ground fault, it explains that the expectation is that such a ground fault will either self-extinguish or… (More)
