This one-day seminar will introduce the basics of grounding system design, discuss evaluation of ground grids for personal safety according to IEEE Standard 80-2000 and the corresponding OSHA Standard, and show how to determine the local ground potential rise (GPR) of the station under test from faults to ground or lightning impulses.
The presenters will also talk about how to determine k-factors and line, earth, positive-sequence and zero-sequence impedances.
Who should attend:
Power utility engineers
Substation design engineers
Transmission line engineers
