3002.3 - IEEE Draft Recommended Practice for Conducting Short-Circuit Studies of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems

This recommended practice addresses activities related to short-circuit analysis, including design considerations for new systems, analytical studies for existing systems as well as operational and model validation considerations for industrial and commercial power systems. Short-circuit analysis includes fault current calculation and device duty evaluation. Accuracy of calculation results primarily relies on system modeling assumptions and methods used. This recommended practice emphasizes the use of computer-aided analysis software with a list of desirable capabilities recommended to conduct a modern short-circuit study. It also presents examples of system data requirements and presents result analysis techniques.
