G Kenyon Technology Ltd, as a content partner with the IET Academy, has developed an on-line course for designers and installers of Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installations.
Learn on-line, at your own pace
This course will cover: the design of electrical installations for, and specification of, electric vehicle charging equipment installations; the requirements detailed in Section 722 of BS 7671:2018; and recommendations of the IET Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Installations, 3rd Edition. It provides an understanding of the key requirements for protection against electric shock, including selection and use of earthing systems, and introduces vehicle-as-storage, wireless power transfer (WPT) and smart infrastructure installations.
Many electrical installations now incorporate new technologies, including embedded generation and home or building automation systems. As use of these technologies becomes more widespread, we need to be ever mindful that control of power to a circuit no longer relies on simple human switching operations. Electrical energy storage technologies that are capable of operating in island mode, continue to provide power when the grid is isolated.
Some incidents that have occurred recently when implementing energy storage systems outside the UK prompted Dr Andrew Crossland and myself to write an article for IET’s Wiring Matters. The article highlights the risks, and discusses safe isolation.
Further guidance on electrical energy storage systems can be found in the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems.

Hear about key changes being introduced in 18th Edition, from key committee experts.
BS 7671:2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations was issued on 2 July 2018. If you’ve been wondering what has changed and what you might need to do differently, attending this update seminar just four days later will give you the answers. A further date has now been added, 7 January 2019 at the IET, Savoy Place, London.
The three experts have active roles in the JPEL/64 committee led approach to the IET Wiring Regulations, so are well-placed to interpret the new edition and explain how it impacts the way you work.
Benefit from the discussion encouraged throughout the day, with plenty of time for delegates to question what, why and how with our panel as well as other delegates. You won’t get such comprehensive clarification by reading articles or sifting through the Regs themselves…
