What you will learn
At the end of this unit, you will:

• Understand the SPD CT1 4+0 connection method for TN systems.
• Understand the SPD CT2 3+1 connection method for TT systems.
• Understand how the LPZ concept describes the installation of Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 SPDs.
• Understand the selection of SPDs using voltage and current characteristics.
• Understand the 10m rule for SPDs in BS 7671.
• Understand the danger of dynamic voltage drop in the SPD connection leads.
• Understand the requirements for energy coordination of two or more SPDs and application conflict between spark gap and varistor types of SPDs.
Who should learn
Before embarking on the course, it was expected that the delegate/student would have learned the use of Ohm’s Law, concept of resistance, inductance and capacitance. Ideally, the delegate/student is working in the field of electrical services engineering either in design/inspection or in installation/testing.
