This engineering guide provides methods for assessing the impact of radiation from pool fire sources to potential targets. The goal of this guide is to provide methods for calculating safe separation distances between fire sources and potential targets that would be damaged or adversely affected by radiation from the fire.
SFPE Engineering Guide: Predicting 1st and 2nd Degree Skin Burns from Thermal Radiation
This engineering guide provides methods for predicting thermal injury to humans from thermal radiation. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the SFPE Engineering Guide: Assessing Flame radiation to External Targets from Pool Fires or other methods capable of predicting thermal radiation.
DC Microgrids and Standards Webinar
Friday, 13 January, 2017 8:30 AM EST/7:00 PM IST
Off-grid microgrid applications can provide power where infrastructure costs or other issues are prohibitive for a fully connected system. IEEE has an initiative in place to make this a reality.
This webinar addresses the needs of the electrical power industry to provide safe and economic access to electricity in areas of developed and developing countries where centralized electric power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure does not exist. In addition, the webinar will provide examples for deployment of distributed generation, storage and use of electricity based on existing technology. Development of the IEEE 2030.10™ Standard for DC Microgrids for Rural and Remote Electricity Access Applications will also be highlighted.
Guest Speakers: Rajesh Kunnath, Radio Studio and Brian Patterson, President of the EMerge Alliance.
Moderator: Sam Sciacca, Senior Director of Technical Program Operations, IEEE-SA
