The course explains the fundamental principles of lightning protection and gives step by step instructions to manage lightning protection for transmission and distribution lines, high voltage substations, and industrial applications. It is designed to provide a background in lightning protection for those people responsible for the reliability of power distribution and transmission systems as well as substations.
Great emphasis is placed on assisting attendees with an understanding of the key principles and concepts regarding lightning protection of power systems. The effects of routing, structure type, insulation, shielding, and grounding on transmission lines will be discussed. The course will also provide design information for the methods historically and typically applied by substation designers to reduce direct lightning strokes to equipment and buswork within substations.
Gain familiarity with the management and design of lightning protection for transmission and distribution lines, high voltage power substations, and industrial applications.
Select an efficient lightning protection design system in order to avoid the main cause of transmission and distribution line outages affecting the reliability of power supply and economic losses.
Provide cost-effective solutions to reduce lightning overvoltage in power systems.
Apply the principles of lightning protection to other industries, such as industrial, chemical, renewable energy, nuclear, and oil and gas.
Understand the key principles and concepts regarding lightning protection and transient overvoltage.
