What is the maximum short time setting which can be used for reducing the Arc Flash Energy?

The maximum breaker setting of the short time pickup of the upstream device associated with a particular AFE location needs to be below the arc flash current calculated at the downstream equipment the breaker is protecting. Otherwise, no additional AF Energy reduction will be provided by the associated upstream breaker.
