About the Author

Mark has compressed a tremendous amount of practical experience in his 15 years of engineering with a wide spectrum of activities from power system protection, telecommunications, power quality and finally fibre optic design and installation. Although one could conclude that as a result "he is a jack of all trades, but master of none", he has demonstrated a significant track record of success in each of these areas in his design and commissioning work. He has specialised in the fibre optic field for the past few years providing solutions from fibre management frames, DWDM, test equipment and fibre management software. Malcom Barnes is a professional engineer with over thirty-five years' experience specialising in automation, switchgear and process control equipment. He is a director of Automated Control Systems based in Perth, Western Australia. Malcom has presented numerous courses in automation and variable speed drives throughout the world.


"Unlike many books on grounding and shielding, this one provides straight-forward, practical solutions to commonly encountered real-world situations and enables one to better understand proper ground methods and to quickly recognize and solve existing grounding issues in a facility. Also, it covers not only low voltage grounding techniques but also power system grounding, which is generally not well covered in literature...There are some very good examples illustrating how motor start-ups can induce a noise signal in signal cables through capacitive coupling into the conduit supplying the power to the motor...There are also many cases showing how ground loops can be formed and ways to prevent them...The reader will get a very good understanding of proper grounding techniques by reading this book and will also learn about the existing standards for grounding...Readers who would benefit from this book include power engineers, consultants, instrumentation and control engineers, technicians, and anyone who designs layout for power and electronics systems or anyone trying to fix grounding issues." - IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine
