Want to learn what goes into an Earthing/Grounding design?
Earthing/grounding design is a safety-critical component of the HV power system. It is often one of the most misunderstood topics or specialisms. In this series, “Earthing Design”, we take the lid off the design process from start to finish, to demystify and bust a few of the common myths and misconceptions.
Knowing the time-pressure to deliver connections onto electrical power systems. It should come as no surprise that this is leading to an increasing necessity for software tools to do much of the heavy lifting. To deal with the complex mathematics and iterations in order to deliver a safe Earthing/grounding design.
Modelling the electrical problems in the virtual world before a single shovel breaks the ground, whatever the season or circumstance, means that ever more complicated problems can be examined, and solved way ahead of the more expensive construction process begins.
If you are curious to learn more. You should head on over to the GreyMatters academy team who have a 20-minute, 3-part webinar series for you. The first of which is here.
Outcomes for Earthing/Grounding design
After watching this webinar you will learn how incredibly easy it is to use top-1% XGSLab software. You will see how to model your electrical power system and subject it to a simulated fault and/or lightning strike in order to see how your earthing/grounding design will perform as well as confirming the necessary safety assumptions.
You will discover the power of the visual colour plot to translate the complex behaviour of a power frequency fault into an easy-to-understand visual map that everyone within the project team can appreciate; from the labourer who has to dig the trenches to the scientist, and everyone in between.
Who Should Attend?
This webinar is right for you if you are responsible for…
- delivering power system designs
- a budget and who organises and leads a design/project team
- subcontracting power system design and/or installations
- delivering Earthing/grounding design
Do You Need To Be A Technical Person To Attend?
You don’t need to be a specialist. This 20-minute introduction piece covers the basics and a reasonable level of underpinning knowledge is assumed. You can build your confidence in a step by step way with the first in this 3-part series from the initial soil resistivity to the final earthing testing.
