When determining overpressure in electrical installations due to internal arcing, it is crucial to know the values of arc voltage and the portion of arc energy leading to pressure rise. In this contribution the fraction Kp of electric arc energy leading to pressure rise in its air surroundings is determined in dependence on arc current, arc energy and… CONTINUE READING
