Grounding of power systems and equipment has great impact on system performance, system equipment integrity, safety of personnel as well as safety of the public at large. It acquires special relevance for distribution systems where grounding directly affects the reliability of supply to the customer, survivability of end-use equipment and safety of individuals. The main objectives of this course are
- Discuss in detail the basic safety issues for low, medium and high voltage systems.
- Designing a reliable grounding system.
- Discuss the safety management and organizational Structure and the human factor the affect electric safety
