NFPA 70E Changes 2021

Mike Brisbois, PE

Over 35 years in the industry Mike performed over +100 arc flash studies for the FAA including Honolulu, Anchorage and Phoenix. He maintained current incident energies for over 1,600 devices at the Naval Shipyard Bremerton Washington with the Navy. At Sigma Six Solutions he performed an arc flash study for the CH2MHill wastewater facility in Vancouver Washington. Mike did presentations for the IEEE Power and Energy Society March 10, 2010 and for all the electricians +80 at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. He created arc flash reports using software packages including Paladin EDSA, SKM, eTap and Easy Power. Mike has written MOPs, LO/TO procedures, and test scripts to ensure operation of electrical systems performed as planned. He specified major electrical switchgear including Eaton, Cutler Hammer, Schneider Electric and GE. Having worked for Siemens and performed several hundred coordination studies to ensure faults stay local versus taking out the whole facility.  In addition to harmonics studies Mike has written insulation resistance, megger, and continuity testing procedures while at Sigma Six Solutions and Kennedy Space Center. Mike has an MBA, BSEE from Florida Institute of Technology.

The LIVE STREAM presentation will focus on the changes to the NFPA 70E 2021 - Informative Annex R Capacitors Electrical Safety.
