About

This Earthing of Utility and Industrial Distribution Systems course at IDC Technologies focuses on the building blocks of grounding of electrical systems. Unnecessary theory is reduced to allow you to focus on best practices over the duration of the course. 

Overview

Few topics generate as much controversy and argument as that of grounding or earthing and the associated matters of lightning and surge protection of electrical and electronic systems. Any engineer or technician dealing with power supply networks needs to understand the basic principles of grounding system design and its role in ensuring safety of equipment and personnel. A correct understanding of the basic principles involved will help to avoid mistakes in grounding system design; mistakes that could lead to expensive failures and long downtime.

In this Earthing of Utility and Industrial Distribution Systems course at IDC Technologies, we aim to demystify the concepts of grounding as applicable to utility networks and industrial plant distribution systems as well as their associated control equipment. In fact, a lot of myths have been built around this subject, although it is quite a simple one when approached from basic principles. 

Our endeavour will therefore be to explain the fundamentals of grounding, which we hope will enable the participants to gain a correct perspective of the subject and give them the knowledge needed to solve real life grounding problems.
