Ground Fault Seminar - Part I with Guy Holt

Class Description: 

It is easy to become complacent and forget that we handle nothing less than “bottled lightning”. Grounding, bonding, and the creation of an effective ground fault current path is the backbone of electrical safety and shock prevention in portal power distribution systems. Where the characteristic impedance of generators is significantly higher than that of grid transformers, Rigging Gaffers must know how to manipulate ground resistance to ensure a safe set. Through case studies and demonstrations, this intermediate webinar will teach you how to keep the lightning in the bottle and make it safe to work with hundreds of thousands of watts of power.
