The predicted arc current and incident energy are used in selecting appropriate overcurrent protective devices and personal protective equipment(generally abbreviated as PPE), as well as defining safe working distance. Since the magnitude of the arc current is inherently linked with the degree of arc hazard, the arc is examined as a circuit parameter.
How to protect from shock and arc flash? A. We can protect from arc flash and shock by doing justification for live work. Work permits are to be implemented in order to do effective maintenance and also protection from shock and arc flash.
