Lightning Protection Installation Training

This course will provide the basic requirements of how to properly install a complete lightning protection system including the requirements of the nationally recognized standards for lightning protection NFPA 780.

1-1/2 Days

Grounding & Bonding

General Grounding & Bonding

This presentation provides an overview of electrical grounding and bonding and the role it plays as the foundation to any electrical protection and power quality scheme. Relevant codes, standards and practices, as well as the elements of a properly designed grounding system will be reviewed. The purpose and means for equipment and system grounding will be presented. The hazards of step and touch potentials will be discussed and how they are eliminated as a threat to personal safety. Soil and ground system testing will be discussed and their importance to system design.  Finally grounding and bonding for lightning protection, computers installations and telecommunications will be reviewed.

60 min

Grounding & Bonding

Signal Reference Grids & High Frequency Grounding

The purpose of this presentation is to define the components of a High Frequency Ground System, to identify the components used and to provide a better understanding of the need for High Frequency Grounds.  What is a High Frequency Ground and why do you need one? What are the Components Used? The different types of SRG and their costs are reviewed. A summary of installation practices is presented.

Lightning Protection Systems

The purpose of this presentation is to provide the audience with a review of lightning and the need for lightning protection systems.  The Basic Principles of Lightning Protection are discussed – traditional Franklin Style Lightning Protection Systems that utilize the technology universally recognized and approved by the worldwide academic community.  Also discussed are unapproved non-conventional lightning protection devices such as early stream emitters (ESE) and charge transfer systems (CTS); which promote technically unaccepted claims of increased areas of protection, or the ability to prevent lighting strikes entirely. The method for conducting a Lightning Risk Assessment (per NFPA780) is presented. Applicable lighting protection Codes & Standards are presented. The basic components of a traditional Franklin Style Lightning Protection Systems are reviewed.

60 min

Lightning Protection   Systems

Lightning Protection System Design

This presentation covers the material in the “Lightning Protection Systems” presentation and also includes the basics for designing a lightning protection system.

75 min

Grounding & Bonding

Lightning Protection & Grounding Wireless Communications Sites

The purpose of this presentation is to cover the approaches taken and products used for grounding wireless communication sites. Focus is placed on the different types of ground electrodes used and recommendations for difficult grounding conditions. Ultraweld exothermic connections are discussed as well as consideration for different types of ground conductors. Ground system design considerations are discussed including soil conditions and site conditions/applications such as raw land, co-locate, and rooftop. Ground test procedures are also reviewed.

100 min

Grounding & Bonding

Lightning & Grounding - Rooftop Applications

This presentations looks at the challenges associated with lightning and grounding rooftop installations. Discussed are the characteristics of lightning versus that of power frequency electricity. Conductors and selecting the appropriate path to ground are discussed. Relevant codes and standards are addressed.

Basics of Ground Testing

The purpose of this presentation is to give the audience an overview of the different types of testing procedures and equipment used for soil resistivity and ground system testing.  Focus is placed on the 4-Point Wenner test for soil resistivity measurements and the 3-Point Fall-of-Potential Method for measuring the resistance to remote ground of a ground electrode system. Clamp-on ground testers are discussed with focus on the advantages and the disadvantages of this method for measuring ground resistance.
