This document covers internal arc-fault control devices, hereinafter referred to as IACD, which are intended to:
- detect internal arc-faults in low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies, by processing (at least) optical effect of an internal arc-fault, and
- operate mitigation device (either external or combined)
in order to minimize the effects of the internal arc-fault (see Figure 1).
