LIGHTNING, SURGE PROTECTION & EARTHING OF ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS IN INDUSTRIAL NETWORKS –
Few topics generate as much controversy as that of grounding and associated topics of surge protection, shielding and lightning protection of electrical and electronics systems. Poor grounding system can be the cause of continual and intermittent difficult –to –diagnose problems in a facility. This workshop looks at these issues from a fresh, yet practical perspective and enables you to reduce expensive downtimes on your equipment to a minimum by a current application of these principles.
This workshop is designed to demystify the subject of grounding and presents the subject in a clear, straightforward manner. Installation, testing, and inspection procedure for industrial power systems will be examined in detail. Essentially, the workshop is broken down into grounding, shielding and surge protection for both power and electronic systems. Grounding and surge protection for telecommunications and IT systems are examined in detail. Finally, the impact of lightning is examined and simple techniques for minimizing its impact are described.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Apply the various methods of grounding electrical systems.
Detect the applicable national standards.
Describe the purposes of grounding and bonding.
List the type of systems that cannot be grounded.
Describe what systems can be operated ungrounded.
Correctly shield sensitive communication cables from noise and interference.
Apply practical knowledge of surge and transient protection.
Troubleshoot and fix grounding and surge problems.
Design, install and test an effective grounding system for electronics equipment.
Understanding lightning and how to minimize its impact on your facility.
Protect sensitive equipment from lightning.
