LECTRO-TECH Lightning Risk Software based on IEC 62305

LIGHTNING PROTECTION STANDARDS IEC 62305

 


Code: P-500

The IEC 62305 came into force in September 2006 and consists of four parts. South Africa has issued a front end standard SANS 10313 that is used in conjunction with the IEC Standards.

IEC 62305-1
Part 1 General Principles
Introduction to the other Parts of the Standards.

IEC 62305-2
Part 2 Risk Management
This part specifically deals with making a risk assessment, the results of which define the level of lightning protection system (LPS) required.

IEC 62305-3
Part 3 Physical Damage to Structures and Life Hazards.
This part gives guidance on the classification of an LPS and maintenance and inspection programmes.

IEC 62305-4
Part 4 Electrical and Electronic Systems within Structures.
This part looks at the electrical and electronic systems and includes a risk assessment that is separate from the structural assessment.

SANS 10313
Front end standard covers issues specific to South Africa for Protection against Lightning Physical Damage to Structures and Life Hazards.


   

The JUPITER RISK ASSESSMENT SOFTWARE is a computer programme developed for designers and engineers to make a complete risk assessment on structures in accordance with these IEC 62305 Standards. JUPITER runs, calculates and reports:

1) STRUCTURE AND COLLECTION AREA
- Analytic calculation
- Graphic calculation
     Shows collection area Ad
     Shows collection area Am

2) CONNECTING POWER LINES
- Standard line
- Custom line

3) ZONES
- Characteristics
     outside
     inside
     persons present
     explosion
     fire risks
- Internal systems
- Risk components
- Loss value

4) PROTECTION MEASURES SELECTION
- Risk composition
- Risk parameters
- Protection choice:
     Automatic
     Manual

5) ECONOMIC EVALUATION
- Structure and contents value
- Protection measures cost

6) SURGE PROTECTION DEVICE SELECTION
- Lines list
- General data
- Installation structure
- Selection and installation of SPD’s

7) TECHNICAL REPORT
    RISK ASSESSMENT DOCUMENT
- Structure layout
- Collection area Ad
- Collection area Am
- SPD installation
