"Low voltage network planning". Click here for the overview.

At the beginning of the electrical planning, the system planning must be carried out according to the regionally defined power supply system, or a suitable power supply system must be selected with the corresponding option. For this purpose, it is necessary to know and understand the effects and requirements of the different power supply systems, as these strongly influence the net structure and the choice of protective devices.  

A special feature of the TN power supply system is the central earthing point. This holds great potential for danger as well as building damage in the long term if it is not properly integrated into the network.


In the course, the important basics are taught and solutions by examples will be discussed. 



  • Regulations and standards

  • Different cases of power supply systems 

  • Influence to protective measures

  • Placement of Central Earthing Point (CEP) and the effects

  • Influence number of feeding sources to CEP



  • None


We are looking forward to meeting you in the event!
