Electrical Grounding Training

Electrical Grounding Training For Industrial Power Systems


This Electrical Grounding training course is founded on the NEC/CEC and is designed to give you the correct information you need to design, install and maintain effective electrical grounding systems in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems.

One of the most important AND least understood sections of the NEC/CEC is the section on Electrical Grounding.

This course will address all changes on Electrical Grounding & Bonding included in the NEC/CEC

The NEC/CEC recognizes materials other than Copper for uses as a Electrical Grounding Conductor in ten different articles of the code. It also addresses corrosion issues in new added Subrule.

There are new Sub rules on Bonding Conductors that bonds fixed equipment. Some other Sub rules have been amalgamated into a new rule. One of the most important changes has been that the new code does not favor “water Pipe” as a grounding electrode. Some other rules have been modified to require alarm indicator installation to indicate a fault on certain systems.

Some other Sections have been changed to be consistent with the rest of the code in particular the Ground Fault Circuit interrupters. Changes have been made to Station Grounding, to meet the maximum permissible Resistance of Station Grounding Electrode. Some of the requirements for driven Ground Rods were deleted, to be consistent with NEC/CEC standards.
