The first half of the course will cover the basics of protecting Distribution and Transmission lines, taught by Charlie Williams Jr, PE, with Progress Energy Florida.

The second half of the course will cover Facility lightning protection, taught by Frank Dlouhy who is president of Omega Power Systems, a consulting and contracting firm that specializes in electrical protection of facilities.

Lunch will be served at 11:45 and the class will start at 12:30 promptly.

Below is an preliminary outline of the second half of the course.
.

Introduction: The Six Point Facility Electrical Protection Plan.

1) Capture the Lightning Strike
2) Safely Convey this energy to ground
3) dissipate energy into the grounding system.
4) bond all ground points together
5) protect AC power distribution
6) protect phone and data circuits.

Briefly Cover Structural Lightning Protection to show alternatives and to explain why it does NOT protect electrical, phone, and data circuits. Proper Grounding and Bonding as it relates to surge and phone protection is briefly discussed (This becomes a common theme throughout the presentation).

Misconceptions of surge suppression. This section covers everything from downline warranties for plug in strips to the effects of Temporary Overvoltages (TOV) on MOV based suppression technologies.

AC Power Surge Protection Applications and guidelines Telecommunications and data Surge Protection Applications and guidelines Some testing videos to have fun with and close the show.

As always, please forward to anyone who might be interested. If you want tobe removed from this list, please let me know. If you know of anyone who should be added to this list, please let me know.

We are the Orlando IEEE Chapter of Power Engineering, Industrial Applications and Power Electronics. We are a joint society of these three societies. Unless indicated otherwise, everyone is welcome at our meetings including students, non-ieee members, and even those who aren't engineers.
