Wind Farm Arc Flash Studies
As a trusted advisor to EDP Renewables, TRC is providing Arc Flash Studies for multiple wind farms being installed across the Midwestern United States.
Our team uses the Electrical Power System Analysis & Operation (ETAP) Software to calculate the incident energy levels at different areas of the collector stations and the wind turbines themselves (both at the base and at the nacelle). We simulate various configurations to determine the maximum incident energy at each specific location. Once the maximum incident energy and arc flash boundary values are determined, TRC develops the arc flash study and provides arc flash labels for each piece of equipment at the site.
This arc flash study allowed EDP Renewables to place – where needed – arc flash labels to depict important safety information and proper protective gear for staff who may have to work on any of the equipment in the future.
