Also, it is understood that the impedance of a series arc fault reduces the load current, which will keep the current below the tripping threshold of the circuit-breaker and the circuit-breaker may therefore not operate to disconnect the circuit.
For this reason details will be included in BS for the installation of arc fault detection devices AFDDs to mitigate the risk of fire in final circuits of a fixed installation due to the effect of arc fault currents. Changes to Section The scope of Section has been extended to apply to embedded electric heating systems for surface heating. They also apply to electric heating systems for de-icing or frost prevention or similar applications, and cover both indoor and outdoor systems.
These include heating systems for walls, ceilings, floors, roofs, drainpipes, gutters, pipes, stairs, roadways and non-hardened compacted areas for example, football fields, lawns. Documentation is also covered. The designer will be required to provide appropriate information about approved substances in the surroundings of the heating units.
For wall heating systems which are more vulnerable than floors and ceilings from penetration the standard contains additional requirements to protect against the effects of overheating caused by a short-circuit between live conductors due to penetration of an embedded heating unit.
In the case of heating units that are delivered from the manufacturer without an earthed conductive shield, a suitable conductive covering, for example, a mesh metallic grid, with a mesh size of not more than 3 mm for wall installations, shall be provided on site and connected to the protective conductor of the electrical installation.
In addition, the IEC standard requires that electric heating systems shall be selected and erected so as to avoid any harmful influence between the heating system and any electrical or non-electrical installations envisaged.
New section - energy efficiency The worldwide need to reduce the consumption of energy means that we have to consider how electrical installations can provide the required level of service and safety for the lowest electrical consumption. The draft proposals enable a client to specify the level of energy efficiency measures applied to an electrical installation.
