TH32  Improving Realism in Fire Probabilistic Risk Assessments

This session will discuss the latest research advances in the area of fire risk. Topics will include physical failures of electrical enclosure resulting in fires and explosions and how new data can be used in modeling fire probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs). Speaker will discuss operating experience and both fire and electrical high-energy arc fault testing. The latest research and PRA applications for cable hot shorting, fire modeling, and a fire events database will also be discussed. International discussion will include seismic induced fires and high-energy arc faults.
