Approximately lightning takes over 2000 lives a year all over the world and causes billions of dollars of equipment damage and loss of valuable economical time. Lightning is one of the most recurring natural events roughly estimated to strike 50 times each second all over the world. Extremely high voltage buildups and current values cause severe damage to objects exposed directly or indirectly to a lightning strike.
A properly designed lightning protection system can protect the intended object with quite a high efficiency. Accepted international standards provide a significant detailed description of designing such an effective lightning protection system.
The training programs cover all significant areas of designing an effective lightning protection system and share the broad and valuable experience of the speakers. All speakers are experts in their respective fields and will bring diverse experience in the practical application of designing and installing lightning protection systems.
Workshop on Lightning Protection and Earthing is designed to cover four (04) significant areas of lightning protection; Surge protection, Structural Protection, Grounding and Bonding, and Measurements. Each session will be covered by a different speaker and each session is complemented with 20 minutes of Q & A session.
