The Department of Electrical Engineering at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) will host a free one-day seminar on substation grounding presented by OMICRON. This 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.
Who should attend:
- Power utility engineers
- Substation design engineers
- Transmission line engineers
- Protection electrical engineers
- University and college lecturers
Seminar topics will include:
- Industry Standards Review – OSHA, IEEE
- Objectives of Good Design
- Understanding the Soil Model
- Ground Potential Rise (GPR)
- Lightning Design Considerations
- Case Studies – Improper Designs
- Testing & Evaluation
- Line Impedance and k-factor Measurement
Cost: No charge. Includes copy of presentations, lunch, and Certificate of Participation. CEUs are available on request.
