Description

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:

  • External Lightning Protection System 
  • Rolling Sphere Method
  • Protective Angle Method
  • Air Termination System
  • Down Conductors
  • Earthing Termination System

Then we will discuss the fundamentals of the standard BS EN 62305-1 where we will address the following:

  • Sources of Damage
  • Types of Damage
  • Types of Loss
  • Types of Risk

Then we will discuss the Internal Lightning Protection Design BS EN 62305-4 where we will address the following:

  • Lightning Current Characteristics
  • Surge Protective Devices

Then we will discuss the Risk Management BS EN 62305-2 where we will address the following:

  • Risk Factors R1, R2, R3, R4
  • Understanding the concept of Design
  • The generic formula of the risk calculation
  • Example of using Risk Assessment Study Calculator
Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone how is interested in learning the fundamentals of lightning protection design
  • Engineers
  • Businessmen
  • Safety Officers

This video summarizes what to expect in the course and who might be interested in joining the course

Preview 01:44

We'll discuss the different type of cloud formations

Preview 04:13

The process of the formation of the downward streamer is discussed in details. This process leads to the flash of the lightning.

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

Introduction to Part 3 of BS EN 62305
03:40

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.

Air Termination System- What is it about?
05:05

The rolling sphere method is implemented to ensure that the air termination system we discussed previously is installed properly and in the appropriate locations. 

Rolling Sphere Method- What is this method?
07:41

Examples on the rolling sphere method will help in understanding the concept.

Rolling Sphere Method with examples
05:45

A small example implementing the rolling sphere method using Autocad is done.

04:11

Using the protective angle method can help in visualization of the design easier than that using the rolling sphere method

Protective Angle Method
07:30

We will present some examples on the protective angle method

Protective Angle Method and Examples
08:48

We'll discuss the down conductors and the earthing termination system.

Down Conductors and the Earthing Termination System
05:37

Separation Distance is important aspect in design to ensure no flash over happens towards our system.

What is the separation distance?
05:42

Inspecting the external lightning protection system is essential to ensure proper functioning. BS EN 62305-3 addresses this point and proposes periodical duration to do so.

Part 1 of BS EN 62305, what is it about?
05:57

In this video we will present a detailed study of the sources of damages as well as the types of damages

Sources of Damage, Types of Damage and Loss
07:03

We will introduce the types of risks and we will make it clear how important to control and decrease the risk values

We will discuss the meaning and important of the Risk assessment

Preview 06:04

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

Risk Management Calculation- What is it about?
05:31

In this lecture we will present the calculation of the collection areas for the structure and the services connected to it.
