Surge Protection to BS EN/IEC 62305 Unit 4: Introduction to lightning protection zones

In stock
1 Hour
Unit overview

This unit will introduce the concept of lightning protection zone. Both BS7671 and BS EN 62305 use lightning protection zones (LPZs) to identify the need for lightning shielding and the nature of surge current impacting the LPZ. BS EN 62305 will take precedence over BS7671 in the designation of LPZs in a building or structure.

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

• Understand the concept of Lightning Protection Zones (LPZ).
• Appreciate the classification of building locations into different LPZs.
• Understand the important role of LPZs for surge protection considerations.
• Appreciate the requirements of BS EN 62305 for LPZs.
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.
