The Nineth ELECTICS Webinar Series that was carried out through the Zoom Online Meetings video conference application.

According to Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management (BNBP), 42% of the 1355 fires that occurred in buildings were related with electrical installation disruptions. Responding to this problem, the Faculty of Intelligent Electrical and Informatics Technology (ELECTICS) of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) held a webinar about Fire and Electricity along with two experts on Thursday (02/07)/.

Through his speech, ELECTICS Dean Dr I Ketut Eddy Purnama ST MT explained the experience of meeting several cases of fires around Surabaya that caused by problems in the electrical power grid. “This is a very important topic to discuss since it’s related to safety,” said Ketut.

The Ninth Webinar on the ELECTICS Webinar Series invited Dr Eng I Made Yulistya Negara ST M Sc from Electrical Engineering Department of ITS which is a academician in the field of High Voltage and Christian Soeryoatmodjo ST who is an expert in electrical equipment field from PT Schneider Indonesia. These two conduct speech and deliver information to the audience.

The Moderator of the Webinar Dr Ign Satriyadi Hernanda ST MT explain that electrical short circuit occurs when the positive and negative terminals are connected with a low-resistance conductor like a wire. With the low resistance in the connection, a high current will flow and caused the delivery of a large amount of energy in a short period of time. “Especially in pandemic conditions like this when we spent our time mostly at home, increasing the awareness of electricity and various things around us is a things we must do,” he added.

In the first topic of High Voltage, Dr Eng I Made Yulistya Negara ST M Sc explained about the concept of high voltage and how it’s occurred. Made also explained various knowledge related to high threshold such as detection technology which can detect the possibility of a fire in a system.

Dr. Eng I Made Yulistya Negara ST M Sc deliver the information in his topic about high voltage.

The man who will soon be awarded the title of Professor in High Voltage field also advised that we must always be vigilant about personal safety when dealing with electrical devices. Electrical power grid must be planned carefully and follow the applicable standards. “Building self-awareness is also an important things to do,” he concluded.

Followed by the second topic titled Electrical Arc Flash: A Practical Introduction that delivered by the Head of Field Marketing, Engineering and Automation of PT Schneider Indonesia, Christian Soeryoatmodjo ST.

 

 Webinar Topic about the standard of electrical equipment presented by Christian Soeryoatmodjo ST.

In his speech, Christian explained various safe to use electrical equipment standards. Not only the tools standard, he also explain the standard of the electrical power grid installation system.

The man who use eyeglasses also advised to never underestimate about standards when using electricity, “We’re dealing with something that’s could not be seen by eyes but can endanger ourselves,” he ended.

The webinar which was attended by more than 250 participants from various institution and companies ended with a photo session through the online meeting platform, Zoom Video Conference. (rys)
