Introduction to HV Earthing & Bonding Unit 3: The Electrode

In stock
1 Hour
Unit overview

Based on previous units it should be starting to come clear now that planet earth has a vital role in providing one of the key possible return paths a fault can take when returning back to its source. In this unit, we dive deeper into the structural analysis of geology, including what can influence its electrical properties and therefore have a direct impact on earthing design and safety.
