Lightning damage to equipment results in losses exceeding twenty-six billion dollars annually in North America, and nearly three times that worldwide with more than 150 strikes per second. Insurance payout resulting from lightning damage, accounts for approximately 6.5 per cent of all industrial, commercial and institutional property and casualty claims. Ironically, lightning damage to equipment can be all but totally prevented.
Special lightning protection systems prevent damage and are simple, very reliable, and inexpensive, particularly when compared to the cost of equipment repair and replacement, as well as the possible consequences of harm to personnel. However, methods for lightning special protection cannot be found in the code books, i.e.; Canadian Electrical Code (CEC).
Who Needs Lightning Protection Systems Training?
In less than 20 years, cellular mobile towers have proliferated on every continent, and are perfect lightning targets! To a lesser extent, AM, FM, and TV towers have also sprouted, sometimes sharing with cell systems. Not only are the towers at lightning risk, but also the cellular, broadcast, and communications antennas mounted on them. At risk too, are the attached cell site equipment, radio transmitters, coaxial cables, and tower light systems.
General review of protection schemes and their impact on various industries. Strategies for mitigating damage and improving overall equipment performance are discussed.
Essential Lightning Protection Systems Applications:
Our Lightning Protection Systems Course will review the important characteristics of natural lightning including its formation, electrical and physical characteristics, and the ways in which it interacts with not only physical structures but also sensitive, critical, and expensive electrical and electronic systems.
