SSI, part of the ILSCO family of companies, is pleased to introduce an overview of lightning and surge protection and the effects of lightning and surges on electrical power systems, instrumentation, and electrical control systems. We will address both proper design and installation, two essential requirements to effective surge mitigation. This interactive, 5 hour course will focus on the practical application of IEEE, UL and NFPA standards to everyday commercial and industrial applications. The Lightning & Surge Protection Seminar is accredited for Professional Development Hours or Continuing Education Units through the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
• Industry Terms and References – Are we speaking the same language? • The Surge Environment – What are surges, where do they originate, and what happens when they reach your equipment? • SPD Design Basics – How do SPDs work and what are the classifications or “Types” of SPDs? • ANSI/UL Standard 1449 Fourth Edition – Changes presented by the ANSI/UL 1449 Fourth Edition • Product Specifications – How to read specification sheets and compare between SPDs. • Proper SPD Installation Techniques (Do’s & Don’ts) • Applications Results – Case Studies on Surge Protection – See results both good and bad. • Comparative Testing – The good, the bad, and the downright ugly.
