Personal Protective Grounding Simulator

 |  ,

Utility Solutions Simulator WEBUtility Solutions Inc. has introduced a new grounding simulator specifically designed for utilities and lineworkers. Following their successful Load-Trainer II Transformer Simulator product, USI has developed a new desktop trainer called the Grounds-Trainer Personal Protective Grounding Simulator that combines hands-on jumper connections with a powerful computer simulation.

Personal protective grounding is a highly complex and often misunderstood subject. Textbooks have difficulty illustrating the effects of a fault on a distribution system. The Grounds-Trainer simulates an overhead distribution system with several variables. Lineworkers can learn the principles of grounding as well as proper work methods, and simulate the effects of a fault at a work site.

Although several industry standards exist for grounding, there is still confusion and misunderstanding as to what occurs during a fault. The variables that affect a work site are difficult to predict and measure. The Grounds-Trainer includes options for many variables, such as system voltages and fault currents, power pole types and distances from a substation, and even the length and type of jumpers used at the work site.

Each jumper connection and variable is displayed on a 7-inch touch screen. The unit includes an HDMI connection, allowing a projector or big screen to display to an entire classroom. Live online demonstrations are available now.
