Grounding Practice and Power Line Disturbance - Considerations for Sensitive Electronics

LEA International

Course Description

This seminar shows how all of the key elements of grounding systems function in conjunction with strategically located overvoltage surge suppression by emphasizing on practical solutions to common problems. The seminar will reinforce the student's ability to solve grounding and power disturbance problems.

This 4-hour seminar is designed for those with a working knowledge of AC power systems. A high-integrity grounding system coupled with properly selected overvoltage surge suppression devices are the single most effective means of assuring quality power distribution with a minimum of interference.

This practical, detailed look at grounding covers the earth ground electrode system, a selected range of AC grounding systems, data line and instrumentation grounding, and RFI considerations.

The seminar is led by an experienced instructor. Our instructors are active in numerous professional organizations including: IEC, IEEE, ANSI, NEMA and UL Advisory. In addition, each student will receive a text specific manual, including charts and graphs, which will continue to serve as a valuable reference in the future.

This seminar is sponsored by the following leading corporations:
