Island mode earthing arrangements: New Guidance in the Second Edition of the IET Code of Practice on Electrical Energy Storage Systems

Graham Kenyon, our Managing Director, has co-authored an article with Dr Andrew Crossland, Director of Advance Further Energy Ltd, for the latest Issue 84 of the IET’s Wiring Matters industry magazine.

Read the article here

The article looks at earthing arrangements for electrical installations that can operate in island mode (when the mains supply is lost) when they have a battery storage system connected. Importantly, it highlights changes in the earthing requirements introduced in the 2nd Edition of the IET’ Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, of which Graham is co-author along with fellow industry expert Martin Cotterell.

MCS launches new Battery Storage Standard

In January 2020, MCS launched its new standard for battery energy storage, MIS 3012.

The new standard, completed with the assistance of our Managing Director, Graham Kenyon, as technical author, outlines the requirements for battery storage systems that MCS certified installers will use to design, supply and install electrical energy (battery) storage systems.

Read more about the launch on the MCS website.

The standard may be downloaded from the MCS Standards and Tools Library.

Working safely with energy storage and smart control technologies

Imaged linked from IET Wiring Matters web-site

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.
