A must-attend course that will benefit all those in the rail industry who have had only a little exposure to earthing in rail _ build your confidence & appreciation of the technical language, key system requirements, design parameters & operational realities. Key Learning Outcomes Illuminate the mislabelled Black Art of earthing Discover the science and craft required to make wise decisions regarding earthing system requirements Discuss matters relevant to safety and earthing systems in organisations Appreciate the complex problems of inductive and conductive interrelationships between substation and power line earthing systems and other conductive assets such as tracks, cabling and fencing Recognise a coordinated approach to the design and management of power earthing systems, lightning protection systems and other rail systems Understand inspection and testing as imperative tools in earthing system management Investigate techniques for solving problems found in earthing system design, using both empirical and analytical computer based techniquesAbout the CourseThis course provides participants with a sound basis in science and practical examples for understanding and problem solving with earthing systems in the rail environment.The course begins with an introduction to the physics of earthing including the areas of circuit fundamentals, conductive effects, proximity, mutual earth resistance and inductive coupling.It will then cover soil resistivity fundamentals, field testing and model assessment and derivation before moving on to empirical and analytical voltage design methods and analysis issues for typical applications.The course includes interactive practical sessions where we will see how specific changes and errors affect outcomes which is invaluable in turning information into understanding.
