49ers’ New Levi's Stadium: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at This Impressive Green Stadium
Image
Speaker: Heath Blount, Brightworks

All sports fans are excited about the newly constructed Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers. But facilities engineers will be especially interested to hear about the many green features of the impressive new stadium. This presentation will provide a behind-the-scenes look at what makes Levi’s Stadium an important green stadium. Topics will include the stadium's 1,162 solar panels; the high-efficiency, water-conserving toilets and sinks; the vegetative roof utilizing native plants; the use of recycled construction materials; the installation of high-efficiency LED lighting; and the electric vehicle charging stations. The speaker also will discuss that the stadium is working toward LEED for New Construction Gold certification, and may become the first NFL stadium to achieve that distinction.

IEEE Guide for Grounding System Characterization (Std. 81
Image
Speaker: Dr. Ahmad Shahsiah, Exponent

Dangerous levels of voltage can be developed at the equipment enclosures and other accessible parts of an electrical system in the event of a major short-circuit fault; these are known as touch potentials. When this type of voltage develops on the ground as a result of the flow of the fault current through the earth, it is known as the step potential. An effective grounding system can reduce the touch and step potentials and provide safety for the personnel during electrical fault conditions.
IEEE Std. 81 defines test methods and techniques used to measure electrical characteristics of the grounding system including measurement of the earth resistivity. Characterization of the grounding system is essential in estimation of the touch and step potentials; and thereby, are necessary during the safety evaluation stages of an existing industrial power system. This presentation is a review of the IEEE standard 81 and its application in safety evaluation of the grounding systems including estimation of the levels of the touch and step potentials.
