Surge Protection to BS EN/IEC 62305
This course provides learners with a good understanding of the technical requirements for surge protection for mains power, instrumentation, control, voice and data circuit installations. The course outlines the lightning protection and earthing principles on surge protection and discusses the surge protection requirements based on BS EN 62305 and BS 7671.
Modules also consider the need for risk assessment for lightning and surge protection, sources of disturbance and damages caused by different risks and the importance of good earthing and main equipotential bonding. The course explores several examples of good and poor surge protection and the correct selection, installation, commissioning and monitoring of SPDs under different system earthing types.

“This is a superb presentation from my IET learned colleagues. I thought I had a good working knowledge of both lightening protection and surge protection but having worked through the topics in this course, I now have a much better knowledge of both topics through understanding the theory and principles behind the practical application.” – John Peckham, Astute Technical Services Limited
