APD Engineering offer other Lightning Protection Design as per AS1768 and Insulation Coordination Studies.

LIGHTNING PROTECTION DESIGN

  • Design requirements in compliance with AS1768
  • Detailed risk assessment and project specific designs
  • Using SES Shield-3D software to carry out Rolling Sphere or Basic Impulse methods
  • Powerline earth wire shielding angle and critical back flashover-voltages.

INSULATION COORDINATION STUDIES

  • Lightning overvoltage studies – detailed modelling of using ATP Draw, PSCAD EMTC and other software
  • Capacitor switching, transformer energisation, load rejection and earth fault over voltage studies and estimation of failure rate
  • Lightning strike insulation studies and selection of surge arrester
  • Point-on-wave and circuit breaker TRV studies.
