Answers to your questions on grounding and lightning protection

Perhaps one of the most exciting webinar with Prof. Edward Meerovitch Bazelyan on the design of grounding and lightning protection was held the recent Wednesday. This is primarily due to the fact that the online meeting was based on questions which we received during the webinars.

We present the video of the webinar to your attention «Answers to your questions on grounding and lightning protection" from 24 June 2015.
