Earthing Conference UK - 4th & 5th May 2023

07 March 2023

Earthing Conference UK is taking place on 4th-5th May 2023 at Park Regis, Birmingham, UK. Few topics generate as much controversy and debate as that of earthing and the associated topics of bonding, grounding, surge protection, shielding and lightning protection of electrical and electronic systems. The aim of this conference is to demystify the subject of earthing and present the subject in a clear, straightforward manner. Register now!

Poor earthing practices can be the cause of continual and intermittent difficult-to-diagnose problems in a facility. This conference will explore these issues from a fresh yet practical perspective to help delegates reduce expensive downtime in their plant and/or equipment by identifying the correct application of these principles.

The aim of this conference is to demystify the subject of earthing and present the subject in a clear, straightforward manner. Earthing as a subject has been under-represented over the years and this event will attempt to remedy the gaps in technical knowledge and improve practices in the industry. The UK & Europe need a unified practical approach to earthing which can be commonly understood and widely applied.

Conference topics include:

- Earthing System Modelling Hands-on Workshop
- Case Study: Going Underground: Earthing of Tunnel Systems for HS2
- Earthing Design and Safety
- Measuring the Resistivity of Crushed Rock in Existing HV Substations
- Earthing, grounding and bonding in static electricity and electrostatic discharge (ESD) avoidance.
