Speaker: Jeff Glenney, P.E, BSEE – Product Manager, Bender, Inc. Ground Fault Protection Systems

Time: Refreshments start at 6pm, talk commences at 6:30pm

Electrical Grounding and Grounding Systems are not always completely understood, with solidly grounded, ungrounded, high resistance grounded, low resistance grounded all present in our electrical systems. There are reasons for each type of system and Bender will highlight why each type of system is desirable and how each can achieve the highest levels of electrical safety for man and machine, all while keeping operations running in the event of and during an electrical ground fault. Consulting Engineers, Facility Managers, Maintenance Personnel all should attend to gain important information on increased safety, uptime, and decreased risk during electrical ground faults. Ground Fault location technology will also be presented.

Biography: Jeff Glenney, P.E. has a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan and is a registered Professional Engineer in Saskatchewan.

He has worked in the electrical protection relay market with various manufacturers since 1995. His roles have included sales engineer, U.S. sales engineering manager, vertical market manager for fuses and relays and now as a product manager. Jeff is a member of IEEE and co-authored “Type B Ground-Fault Protection on Adjustable Frequency Drives“. He has worked with many end customers and design engineers to assist in applying protective relays to meet their system needs.
