22/11/2018

In terms of protection against lightning and prevention measures, the 30/30 rule as it is commonly known, is a household measure to protect against lightning strikes. In fact, you wouldn’t have any problem finding information related to the matter with very little research.

Coordinating cascaded surge protection devices: how to stagger the protection?    

Coordinating cascaded surge protection devices: how to stagger the protection?

31/10/2018

The protection against overvoltages in an electrical installation is vital to guarantee peoples safety and avoid short and long term damages to equipment. A large majority of the installations are protected against overloads and derivations, but the installed devices do not protect against transient overvoltages (due to lightning) and permanent overvoltages (for example due to neutral failures).

General earthing system: earthing installation

28/09/2018

The general earthing system connects the different parts of an electrical installation with the surface conductor of the Earth to guarantee security and functionality.

In an electrical installation, the soil itself provides equipotentialization for all of the metallic parts so that there are no differences in potential between each other. This is carried out in order to guarantee the safety of people and equipment from any possible defects in the actual facilities.
