Designing Grounding Systems that Safely Dissipate Fault Currents and Disperse Lightning Current
This session, given by Ivan Grobbelaar, PE, Senior Engineer at DEHN Africa, illustrates the differences between simulations for power frequency faults and lightning strike conditions.
Static Discharge Awareness and Explosion Protection
For any person responsible for the safety of employees, colleagues, plant equipment and plant property, one of the most potentially confusing aspects of providing a safe operating environment is understanding and safeguarding against static discharge. In this webinar, given by Christopher Coughlan at Newson Gale, a Hoerbiger Safety Solutions Company, he discusses how to determine if your site’s manufacturing or handling processes have the potential to discharge static sparks into flammable or combustible atmospheres. More often than not, static-caused fires and explosions result in expensive production downtime, legal and insurance costs related to personnel injuries, fatalities, and damage to company property. The overall cost of non-compliance can stretch far beyond potential “savings” achieved by ignoring the risk of electrostatic ignitions or by using non-compliant static control methods.
XGSLab New Feature - Seasonal Analysis For Grounding Systems
In regions where the frost depth meets or exceeds the depth of a grounding system, the grounding system’s performance may be dramatically reduced, possibly creating hazardous conditions. The latest XGSLab release 9.5 provides a powerful new tool to analyze grounding system performance that considers the seasonal variation in soil characteristics. In this webinar, given by David Lewis, an electrical engineer at EasyPower, we describe the effect that seasonal variation can have on a grounding system and we step you through the use of the Seasonal Analysis tool.
Cracking the Code for Arc-Flash Mitigation
The National Electrical Code (NEC) outlines several arc-flash mitigation options. This presentation, given by Mark Pollock at Littelfuse, reviews the arc-flash mitigation options from the NEC 2020, and some updates to the IEEE 1584-2018 standard. In addition to understanding the codes, we’ll discuss the return on investment for the various mitigation options and importance of arc-flash assessments in your facility.
Active & Passive Harmonic Filters in EasyPower
In this webinar, Tao Yang, Ph.D, PE, from EasyPower provides a refresher course on fundamental concepts of harmonics study and the EasyPower Harmonics module. He describes the two major harmonics filters, both active and passive, and their implementation in the EasyPower Harmonics module. As passive filters are widely used in the industry, he covers four kinds of typical passive filters: notch, first order, second order, and C-type filters, including their implementation in EasyPower and their tuning processes. He uses live examples to demonstrate the modeling and parameter tuning for both active and passive filters using simple EasyPower cases. Article 708 covering mission critical homeland security systems further requires a risk assessment and mitigation plan for meteorological hazards such as lightning. This is a continuing and ongoing process of recognizing the importance of lightning and surge protection for critical services and for facilities which although not critical, are at above average risk for loss of life or property due to lightning.
The Arc Flash The Easy Way, 4-Part Webinar Series
The Arc Flash Made Easy Webinar Series is a four part series that covers the steps needed to do a basic arc flash study. The topics include the NFPA and OSHA standards and regulations that apply to arc flash. Then data collection in covered in preparation for system modeling and initial arc flash analysis. The series wraps up with arc flash reports, labels, and project recommendations.
