Plant-Wide Arc Flash Study - 1,000+ Connected Busses

Plant-Wide Arc Flash Study - 1,000+ Connected Busses


Since 2008, Magna IV Engineering has been engaged to model and study the electrical facilities at NOVA Chemicals in Joffre, with over 1,000 connected busses.

Magna’s engineers have modelled each facility in a single ETAP database, and performed all electrical studies. An Excel spreadsheet and Access Database were used to track all data, including: reference drawings, manuals, datasheets, and test reports.

The output of each Arc Flash Study included recommendations for hazard mitigation, which lead to electrical system upgrades during planned shutdowns, and revisions to the model to update the Arc Flash Hazard information provided on labels throughout the site.
