Surge Protection to BS EN/IEC 62305 Unit 7: Introduction to lightning protection system design

In stock
1 Hour
Unit overview

This unit will explore BS EN 62305 Part 3, methods of external lightning protection and isolated systems vs. non-isolated systems. Good surge protection measures must be accompanied by the correct lightning protection system (LPS) with good earthing. This unit covers the basic design parameters and concepts of LPS design based on BS EN 62305 Part 3.

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

• Understand the lightning protection design principles of a building or structure for external lightning protection systems under BS 62305 Part 3.
• Understand the relationship between lightning protection levels and class of lightning protection systems and rolling sphere radius.
• Understand the three different lightning protection methods.
• Understand isolated and non-isolated systems and separation distance.
• Understand Type A and Type B earthing arrangements.
• Understand typical earthing and bonding arrangements relating to external lightning protection systems.
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.
