I am being challenged by our work group regarding working on a HV generator set (11kV) that is in close proximity to other operating generators at 11kV within a powerstation.  From NFPA-70E Table 130.7(C)(15)(a) a generator would fall into the "other equipment" category and that the arc flash boundary is 40ft.  Their concern is that they are… (Show more)

Our generator rep has seen an output breaker accidently left open but not ERMS. I previously posted a note concerning this in Building and Life Safety, had one person respond and just want to share with… (Show more)
