As teams around the world adapt their work style and business practices to take precautions for COVID-19, staying connected and having clarity around work and priorities is more important than ever. To that end, we want to help our global customers. So we are sharing tips and best practices around earthing, earthing design, and best design practices. With a monthly series of Free Webinars.
Below are the links to the recorded replays.
Soil Resistivity Testing – How To Avoid Common Mistakes – Recorded September 2020
In any design/installation – starting with a solid, reliable data-set that you have confidence in, is super important. So, understanding what a ‘good’ set of measurements looks like versus what an erroneous set looks like is critical.
So, learn where the errors can creep in and why. Learn the common mistakes to avoid so that your project, your tests, are technically secure when they fall under the spotlight of close scrutiny.
Using Earthing Software – It Should Be Childs Play. – Recorded July 2020
Earthing/grounding design is anything but child’s play but the software tools that are used to do a lot of the heavy lifting should be.
Well, in this webinar you will learn the basics of how to do an earthing study – using engineering software that has left the old ways behind. Breaking with tradition, XGSLab is the first of breed to use a modern coding platform, which means opportunities to integrate with other modern software opens up and familiar modern navigation, at last, opens up earthing software to feel like child’s play – fun!
Hot Sites or Transferred Potentials – Recorded June 2020
Knowing that Earthing Design is a safety-critical component of the power system, means that the configuration and deployment of the earth electrode are massively important – get this wrong and lives are at risk.
After watching this video, you will learn what constitutes a ‘hot-site, the parameters that make up this classification, what it means to have a ‘hot site and what you need to do in order to manage/mitigate the risk to your neighbouring properties in both a rural and urban setting.
Split or Reduction Factors – Recorded May 2020
Split factors and understanding how to calculate them or, if there is not enough data available, what assumption is appropriate to apply is one of the more common problems encountered in modern Earthing Design – Especially in the rail sector.
In this webinar you will learn what a split factor is, where it came from and the relevance of the 80/20 rule.
Earthing in Difficult Geologies – Recorded April 2020
You don’t need to be a specialist to know when you have a problem – you just need to be someone that can lay their hands on the solution, right?
Well, if you’ve ever suffered the unexpected discovery that your site/project is sitting on a geology that is going to make your life hard, then this webinar is for you. Find the solutions in under 30-minutes to help get your project over the line.
