An EFW Plant Case Study: Examining Low and High Voltage Earthing Protection

High Voltage Earthing Protection – A Case Study at an EFW Plant

In the context of electrical earthing or grounding. Earthing Protection defined as the Protective Earthing of electrical installations at low voltage, i.e. <1,000V AC as described in Electrical Earthing Standards BS 7430. So, in this case, study. We take a look at a few challenges we came across while designing the HV Earthing and Lightning […]

Your Standard Earthing Design – Are They Valid Anymore?

Standard Earthing Design

A number of organisations across the UK recommend a standard earthing design when building smaller scale substations. The key driver behind these is one of cost. Nobody wants to pay more than they have to. For an HV connection using a templated approach to meet Earthing Standards compliance kind of makes sense – or does it? […]

Electrical Earthing Testing in Urban Environments

Electrical Earthing Testing in Urban Environments

Electrical earthing testing.  We are asked frequently – How do you test an Earth arrangement in London? What is Electrical Earthing Testing? Electrical earthing, or grounding, refers to the practice of intentionally connecting a conductor to the ground for safety and functional purposes. Electrical earthing testing is the process of testing the effectiveness of the […]

Designing SAFE Electrical Earthing: Answering Impossible Questions

Safe Electrical Earthing Systems

Computer modelling for safe electrical earthing systems for Fault, EMI or Lightning Attachments The use of computing power to check, evaluate or inspect concepts in all walks of life and business, is increasingly common. Whether you forecast the performance of stock and shares or building an Electrical Generation Plant. For safe electrical earthing systems using engineering computer […]

ISO 55000 – 5 Things you need to know now

ISO 55000 GreyMatters

It’s difficult to get excited about any of the ISO standards but knowing these are hardly the most exciting of reads, imagine the delight when asked by a client “what do you know about ISO 55000?”
