Hi! Are you interested in knowing more on what gets into the design of lightning protection systems? This system saves thousands of lives each year and hundreds of million dollars.The course will address the lightning protection design on structures by following the British Standard BS EN 62305.
The course is divided into four parts each addressing a single part of the BS EN 62305.
We'll start with part three of the standard BS EN 62305-3 where we will address the following:
Then we will discuss the fundamentals of the standard BS EN 62305-1 where we will address the following:
Then we will discuss the Internal Lightning Protection Design BS EN 62305-4 where we will address the following:
Then we will discuss the Risk Management BS EN 62305-2 where we will address the following:
This video summarizes what to expect in the course and who might be interested in joining the course
The process of the formation of the downward streamer is discussed in details. This process leads to the flash of the lightning.
We'll discuss the structure of the course and how we will investigate each of the four parts of the BS EN 62305 standard.
In this lecture we will investigate the meaning of the lightning protection level and its characteristics. We'll discuss how class IV is different than class III.
This is the first video on external lightning protection system. We will pave the road to learn more on the design of such a system
In this section we will discuss about the air termination system. It is important to design a proper air termination system to ensure that the structure is fully protected.
The rolling sphere method is implemented to ensure that the air termination system we discussed previously is installed properly and in the appropriate locations.
Examples on the rolling sphere method will help in understanding the concept.
A small example implementing the rolling sphere method using Autocad is done.
Using the protective angle method can help in visualization of the design easier than that using the rolling sphere method
We will present some examples on the protective angle method
We'll discuss the down conductors and the earthing termination system.
Separation Distance is important aspect in design to ensure no flash over happens towards our system.
We will discuss the lightning protection standard BS EN 62305 part 1 where we will learn the sources of damage, S1,S2,S3,S4 as well as types of Damage D1,D2,D3 and the types of loss L1,L2,L3,L4
In this video we will present a detailed study of the sources of damages as well as the types of damages
We will introduce the types of risks and we will make it clear how important to control and decrease the risk values
We will give examples to signify that the internal systems are in danger from lightning even if the lightning strikes at a distance of 2km. We will discuss the two major lightning current characteristics
We will present a proper way to select the lightning protection Surge Protective Devices (SPDs).
We will discuss the meaning and important of the Risk assessment
Risk Assessment can be done manually, but it is easier to do that using available software. In this lecture we will present the manual initial calculations to understand the essence of the risk management calculation
In this lecture we will present the calculation of the collection areas for the structure and the services connected to it.
