Webinar: Lightning Protection & Risk Analysis Based on MS IEC 62035 – Session 2
Date: Saturday, 27 November 2021
Time: 9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. (Registration start at 8.30 a.m.)
Venue: ZOOM Application
Speaker: Mr. Ritesh Lutchman, Wise Pro Sdn. Bhd.
This webinar will explain on how to:
- Save up to 33% costs of material and labour by knowing the materials and installation methods while still complying to MS IEC 62035 standard
- Material, configuration and minimum cross-sectional area of air-termination conductors, air-termination rods, earth lead-in rods and down-conductors
- Material, configuration and minimum dimensions of earth electrodes
We will also discuss on Internal Lighting Protection MS IEC 62035 Part 4:
- Does Surge Protective Devices (SPD) rated 200kA able to withstand a 200kA surge - 10/350μs or 8/20μs?
- International Standard application - IEEE (UL), BS, AS, or IEC Standard? What are the differences?
- Correct application for Lightning Current Protection (10/350μs) and Surge (Transient) Current (8/20μs)
- Differences in energy level for 10/350μs and 8/20μs
- Differences and Comparison in Class I (Type1), Class II (Type2) and Class III (Type3) for all types of SPD
- Ensuring the correct Fuses / Moulded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) rating
This webinar will give better understanding to Engineers and Designers on the application of risk analysis and how to apply the risk analysis outcome to the lightning protection design (External and Internal).
