This interactive virtual workshop will provide a thorough overview of AS2067, a mandatory standard for HV design.
Delivered by John Giles, an electrical engineer and design manager with over 40 years of HV experience, you'll gain a deep understanding of the critical technical concepts, clauses and design requirements indicated by the standard.
Following a detailed explanation of the sections of the standard, John will then expand on the major concepts including topics such as clearances, earthing, fire risk mitigation, equipment requirements.
This workshop will run during the following times:
9:00am - 1:30pm AEDT, October 2021 - March 2022
9:00am - 1:30pm AEST, from April 2022
Registration closes three business days before each workshop.
- Understand what AS2067 contains
- Understand the fundamental technical concepts in the standards contract
- Understand how to apply clearances
- Understand earthing requirements
- Understand fire risk management

John Giles has more than 40 years' experience as an electrical engineer and design manager. His expertise ranges from component design, manufacturing, and project engineering to commissioning and detailed systems design. He is a member of the Standards Australia EL43 (AS2067) committee (since 1997) and the EL52 (AS7000) committee (since 2007).
John’s varied experience includes power generation, HV power transmission systems, HV power distribution, water and wastewater treatment, control and instrumentation, microwave and communications networks, building services, and process automation.
In his 30 years as chief engineer for UGL Infrastructure, John led the development of 'Safety In Design' approaches within the organisation. He introduced tools such as the CHAIR process and HAZOP and CHAZOP reviews.
As a consultant, he has conducted more than 100 Safety in Design workshops for electricity, water, and wastewater infrastructure projects.
John holds a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering, a Bachelor of Science (Physics), and a Master of Engineering Science.
He is Principal of his own company, Appleseed Engineering, and a Fellow of Engineers Australia.
The session was informative in terms of pointing to AS2067 requirements in a high level scale. The construction and installations points sections were most useful.
The facilitator provided clear examples to be considered when designing a high voltage substation.
