Internal arc safety according to IEC/TR 61641

Internal Arc:

1.) Ignited by a short circuit with a small conductor or


another arc flash
2.) convert into plasma beam
3.) pressure expansion through starting plasma beam
4.) plasma beam (arc) with up to 15000K try to expand
and run over the live conductors

7 Selection of test specimen and validity of tests for similar designs
(possibilities for derivation)
The arc tests should be made on representative ASSEMBLIES. Due to the variety of types, ratings and possible combinations of
functional units and components, it is not practicable to make arc tests on all the arrangements. The performance of any particular
arrangement can be substantiated by test results of a comparable design. The test should be performed on every representative
functional unit in the position deemed most onerous in the ASSEMBLY. ASSEMBLIES or functional units which are protected by
current-limiting devices should be tested with the device having the highest values of the limitation characteristics (I2t, Ipk) at the
intended prospective short circuit current and operational voltage. The validity of the results of a test carried out in a functional unit of
a particular design of an ASSEMBLY can be extended to a similar design provided that the original test was equal to or more
stressing and this other functional unit can be considered as equal to the tested one in the following aspects:
– dimensions;
– structure and strength of the enclosure;
– architecture of the partitioning;
– performance of the pressure relief device, if any;
– insulation system;
– surface treatment of the inside of the enclosure and internal partitions, e.g. non
conducting surface treatment or bare metal.
A test carried out at a particular short circuit current, rated operation voltage and duration
covers:
– the same or lower short circuit currents;
– same or lower rated operational voltage, and;
– the same or lower duration.
An ASSEMBLY intended to be used with d.c. should to be tested with d.c.. A substitution with an
a.c. test is not recommended because the behaviour of the arc and any associated protective
devices differs considerably
