What is the need for a lightning protection system and earthing system design?
A robust Earthing and lightning protection system design is the first step in any electrical system to ensure safety to human beings, prevent damages to assets and properties.
Soil Resistivity and Soil Analysis is the key factor that determines the resistance or performance of an electrical Earthing system. It is the starting point of any electrical Earthing system design.
With the advent of technology, computer-aided software design of Earthing and lightning protection systems have assumed greater importance and significance. In-depth analysis, better accuracy, optimization without compromises are the hallmarks of computer software based design.
JEF provides Earthing system design through world-renowned CDEGS software which is the top-rated bench mark software as recommended by IEEE 80 -2013 standard. We at JEF have developed an in-house Risk Assessment Software for designing a Lightning Protection System as per Indian (IS/IEC 62305), French (NFC 17-102) and American (NFPA 780) standards
LIGHTNING PROTECTION SYSTEM DESIGN INVOLVES:
- Collection of Data
- Risk Assessment
- Determining level of protection
- Arriving at BOQ and Specifications.
JEF offers Earthing and lightning protection system design for various industry segments like
- EHV Air Insulated and Gas Insulated Substations.
- Metro Rail Projects
- Solar and Wind Farms
- Commercial Buildings and Shopping Malls
- IT Facilities
- Residential Complexes
