“Electrical: Circuit Protection” is the title of an upcoming webinar sponsored by Consulting-Specifying Engineer. ESD Technical Director Randall Ehret will be joining a panel of experts presenting the topic.
According to the course description, there is no set template to follow when designing a protection scheme for circuit overloads, ground faults, and short circuits. Electrical engineers are faced with constantly changing codes and standards that can often be interpreted in various ways.
Learning objectives for the program include:
- Understanding the different types of overcurrent protective device strategies to apply in building electrical systems.
- Recognizing the difference between ground-fault protection for equipment (GFPE) versus ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) protection for personnel).
- Reviewing how to protect against the various types of faults.
- Understanding the role of selective coordination.
The thought leaders will also present best practices for design via case studies and project examples. Registration for the June 28 webinar is open. One AIA CES-approved LU is available for attendees upon successful completion of an exam.
Randy Ehret freely shares his technical knowledge and industry experience with programs such as this as part of furthering ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
