Surge Protection to BS EN/IEC 62305 Unit 9: BS 7671 regulations on surge protection (2)

In stock
1 Hour
Unit overview

The use of Type 1, Type 1/2, Type 2 or Type 3 Surge protection devices is highly dependent on the location of the equipment and the transition interface of the supply cable between lightning protection zones (LPZs). This unit will introduce the lightning protection zone concept as per BS EN 62305-4 and BS7671 section 534 and examine what type of SPDs should be provided at relevant locations.

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

• Understand the lightning protection zone concept as per BS EN 62305-4 and BS7671 section 534.
• Understand the reduction of rated lightning impulse level between two different LPZs.
• Understand why consideration should be given to the provision of SPDs to protect from other sources.
• Understand how the effect of lightning current galvanic conduction through any electrical circuits installed in the LPZ0 zone can impact on the main electrical installation.
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.
