Course Description

Early Booking Rate: ?430 + VAT valid until 29.08.10 Standard Booking Rate: ?470 + VAT Lightning is a natural phenomenon which cannot be prevented. By its very nature, lightning presents a major threat to structures, systems and people. Effective, correctly installed lightning protection is vital in order to save lives, reduce the risk of damage caused and avoid costly disruption to business critical systems. Presented by experts from Cobham Technical Services ? ERA Technology and Lightning Testing and Consultancy this intensive one day course examines the phenomena and physics of lightning, and provides an understanding of lightning standards. The potential for damage and concepts by which structures and electrical systems can be protected from direct lightning strikes, will also be studied. The course also examines the application of earthing and bonding techniques, together with the design and test techniques which are necessary for designing effective lightning protection. Case studies are used to illustrate the application of various protection systems for a variety of buildings and systems. The programme includes ? The physics of lightning? Lightning protection of structures and coupling to electrical systems? Lightning protection of electrical systems? Lightning standards? Applications? Design tools The course will be of interest to designers of structural and electrical systems, as well as those who own or manage structures and overhead lines. It is also of great value to those operating vulnerable equipment within buildings such as critical installations, exposed structures, and extensive systems such as IT networks.
