Earthing Design Series Part 2 – What is a touch/step voltage hazard?

Why You Should Attend

Earthing/grounding design is a safety-critical component of the HV power system. It is often one of the most misunderstood topics or specialism. In this series “Earthing Design”, we take the lid off the design process from start to finish, to demystify and bust a few of the common myths and misconceptions.

Knowing today’s electrical power system cannot be connected into a network without first demonstrating that the Earthing/grounding electrode arrangements are designed appropriately to deliver a safe system whatever the season or circumstance, software tools are increasingly doing much of the heavy lifting to deal with the complex mathematics involved and model the electrical problems in the virtual world before a single shovel breaks the ground.

Webinar Outcomes

After watching this webinar you will learn what you need to do for the next step after you’ve captured your soil data, and building your model using the incredibly easy to use top-1% XGSLab software.

Learn more about touch and step voltages and why they are critical to a safe design.

Discover the power of the visual plots to translate the complex behaviour of a power frequency fault into an easy-to-understand visual map that everyone within the project team can appreciate; from the labourer who has to dig the trenches to the scientist, and everyone in between.

Who should attend?

This webinar is right for you if you are…

  • Responsible for delivering power system designs
  • Responsible for a budget and who organises and leads a design/project team
  • Responsible for subcontracting power system design and/or installations
  • Responsible for delivering Earthing/grounding system design

Do you need to be a technical person to attend?

You don’t need to be a specialist. This 20-minute introduction piece covers the basics. However, a reasonable level of underpinning knowledge is useful.
