LCS employee wins Higher National Engineering Best Electrical / Electronic Project Award
Howard Lawrence won the Higher National Engineering Best Electrical / Electronic Project Award at Central Sussex College annual Awards and Exhibition 2015. His project for an Earth Fault Relay Test Set for London Underground was a good platform to display his design, manufacturing procurement and testing & documentation skills to produce a 'product' to meet a customer requirement. The Test Set is designed to provide two independently adjustable 0-500Vdc supplies, one Positive and one Negative about a common point. Voltages are displayed on digital panel meters.
It is intended primarily for testing the London Underground Traction Earth Detection (TED) equipment.
The two supplies are in separate robust portable cases for ease of movement. In normal use the two supplies are linked together to provide the required functionality. However, the Positive unit may be used on its own as a single variable dc supply.
