Electrical Arc Flash Analysis for Ford Research & Engineering Center


As one of the key Electrical Engineering firms, Applied Power and Controls, Inc. teamed up with DSD to perform an Arc Flash Study for Ford’s Research and Development Division. Our primary focus was the Research and Engineering Center in Dearborn, Michigan; over forty (40) existing buildings were surveyed and modeled to determine the Arc Flash rating for every piece of electrical equipment over 150V. Also, included in the project was printing and applying the Arc Flash safety labels. APC’s responsibilities included field surveying approximately 25% of the buildings (a total of eleven (11) buildings), ranging in size from a small warehouse to the multi-million square-foot Product Development Center (left). APC also performed 35% of the Arc Flash studies, wrote 50% of the reports and responsible for the quality assurance on the remaining studies and reports.
