Arc Flash Hazard Analysis

For Applications with system voltages below 1,000 Volts

where:
lg = the log10
Ia = arcing current in kA
K = -0.153 for open air arcs; -0.097 for arcs-in-a-box
Ibf = bolted three-phase available short-circuit current
(symmetrical rms) (kA) between 700 and 106,000 amps
V = system voltage in kV
G = conductor gap (mm) (See Table on following slide)
