Substation Grounding Design ELCL 9098


Our Substation Grounding Design course focuses on the correct design for a substation grounding system using the ETAP software grounding model and following the standard requirements of the IEEE 80. Learn how to correctly model a grounding system by calculating ground potential rise (GPR), touch voltage and step voltage limits. Get the skills you need to ensure the safety of personnel and equipment by studying different scenarios and grounding interconnection.


Course Essentials:

The ETAP software used in this course requires a computer with a 2 GHz (or greater) processor, 8 GB (or greater) RAM and a Microsoft Windows 8 (or higher) 64-bit operating system.
