The right planning of a switchgears in combination with earthing and lightning protection is of elementary importance for the safe operation of an electrical grid. Making the right decision will also ensure safe and economical operation for years to come. Some important aspects in this respect are choosing the right design and performing regular testing, e.g. of the earthing system and the external and internal lightning protection.
The objective of this workshop is a compact and practical illustration of planning fundamentals for switchgears in industrial networks and critical infrastructures. The necessity of detailed concepts for both external and internal lightning protection of electrical systems will also be discussed. We will use practical examples to give you an interesting insight into typical challenges for the planning of switchgears.
