Learning Objectives Attendees will learn how to identify and implement industry best practices for establishing robust electrical systems, with an emphasis on the following applications:
Grounding and Bonding. Industry best practices and standards compliance for proper grounding of equipment, systems, and sites
Protection. Protecting sensitive equipment from transient overvoltage events (surges)
Transformers. Considerations for step-down and isolation transformers
Power Management. Power management through measurement and monitoring
Who Should Attend? This course is designed for the technical professional working with electronic equipment and electrical power systems for mission-critical facilities such as:
911/emergency management centers,
Tactical operations centers, and
A prerequisite for attendance is a basic knowledge of electrical theory including Ohm’s Law.
Basics of Grounding
Grounding Electrode System
Equipment and Enclosure Grounding
DC Grounding Practices
What to Expect The class meets from 8 am to 5 pm. Each student will receive a course manual that includes the figures, tables and graphs discussed during the presentation.
Additional Training Upon request, a second day of hands-on Site Inspection Training for private groups may be arranged following this course.
Site Inspection Training takes place at a client facility, where students will learn the principles and techniques to identify deficiencies in a site’s electrical, grounding, and protection systems including visual inspection and using various field measurement instruments.
