Earthing systems

The last tenth course in the comprehensive programme on power quality covers the subject of reliability of electricity supply.

The knowledge acquired during the course should be sufficient for:

  • understanding earthing principles
  • selecting earthing technique
  • specifying earthing systems
  • performing main earthing measurements

The course should take about 20 hours for participants with an electrical engineering background.

Enrolment for this course (PQ06) is open. Please join Academy here
