Substation Safety: What We Can’t See Can Hurt Us

This session will focus on the hazards of induction, objectionable current flow and gradient potential, as well as how to mitigate these hazards. Special consideration will be given to temporary protective grounding and equipment bonding, which are especially important in substation ground grids. Case studies will be presented, including those regarding serious injuries from operating gang switches and an induction fatality. Learning objectives for this session include defining the qualifications and training requirements for substation personnel; describing hazardous conditions, including induction, objectionable current flow, gradient potential and arc flash; and determining methods to mitigate hazards.
