"This class was great. I have a much better handle on the subject of grounding and noise. Keep up the good work." —Newell Collins, Technical Specialist—Instrumentation
This course provides an understanding of electrical grounding from an electrical and instrumentation loop relationship. It also covers grounding for personnel/equipment protection as well as for electrical noise. Signal wiring and noise reduction methods are also presented. The material assumes the student has a basic understanding of electrical principles and signal wiring. The National Electrical Code (NEC) is referenced throughout the course.
You will be able to:
Discuss the relationship between earth ground to electricity and electrical shock
Explain why some electrical systems are connected to earth ground
Use the National Electric Code (NEC) as standard for grounding instrument systems
Illustrate how people become part of an electrical circuit and how to avoid it
Define what a ground loop is
Compare noise and interference and how they are transmitted
Identify instrument signal wiring and conductors
Use methods to reduce instrument noise
Identify the effects of harmonics on power systems, control systems, and computers
You will cover:
Grounding: NEC Definitions | Requirements | Grounding vs. Grounded Conductor | What are Earth and Isolated Grounds? | Bonding Requirements | Grounding Methods | Ground Loops | Lightning Affects on Electrical Systems and Grounding Systems and How to Help Protect Devices | Electrical Shock
Electrical Noise: Noise vs. Interference | Radiated, Capacitive or Inductive Coupled, or Conducted Noise | Identifying the Source, the Path, and the Target of the Noise So It Can Be Controlled | Types and Paths of Signal Wiring | Ground Loop Generated
Powering Sensitive Equipment: Power Quality | Voltage and Current Disturbance Wave Forms | Surge Protection Devices and Characteristics | Power Conditioners | UPS | Circuit and Equipment Affects of VFD/non-Linear Power Supply Harmonics
Review the effects of various levels of electrical current flowing through the human body
Use a circuit tester to understand how a GFCI works by checking circuits for improperly terminated leads
Measure harmonic voltage distortion using a digital power analyzer
