Military Electrical Grounding Training

Military Electrical Grounding Training

Our Military Electrical Grounding Training course for military applications covers the operations of aircraft and naval vessels, as well as EMI problems.

Electrical Grounding for military applications methods are presented in this course for operations of aircraft and naval vessels. These include operations such as fueling/defueling, parked evolutions store loadings hot refueling and all external power evolutions and on board ship, tiedown and static ground requirements.

Proper grounding is an essential for safely and reliably operating electrical systems. Improper grounding methodology has the potential to bring disastrous results from both an operational as well as a safety standpoint.

There are many different categories and types of electrical grounding principles. This Military Electrical Grounding Training course covers proper grounding techniques including low voltage Instrument and Control Systems that have been proven safe and reliable when employed in military operations.

The increased use of electrical and electronic equipment introduces risk of electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems to operations and performance will also be examined.

This course also contains information about bonding during Flight Line Electrical Distribution System (FLEDS) operations.

It also addresses shipboard bonding, grounding, and other techniques for electromagnetic compatibility, electromagnetic pulse (emp) mitigation, and safety.

This course also addresses Ordnance Facilities Protection against lightning and protection of Storage and Handling Facilities Above Ground and Earth-Covered Magazines.
