The main requirement to the grounding system is to ensure the human and equipment safety against damage ant to provide the reduction in the level of disturbances , and also to provide the reference potential to the electronic, analogous and digital circuits.
Abstract: This paper presents Computer Aided Design (CAD) CYMGRD software which assists engineers to design grounding facilities for substations and buildings.
As a refresher topic on grounding techniques, we present this update of an article that appeared in the January 2002 issue of EE-Evaluation Engineering.
Proper grounding is the first line of defense against the $1 billion spent annually on damage around the globe due to lightning and 60 percent of system outages due to lightning on the East Coast alone.
That quality of grounding enables the tree to stand tall.
One of the most common types of electrical failure is improper grounding. In these facilities, system grounding--the intentional connection of a phase or neutral conductor to earth--allows the flow of electrical current to be controlled and monitored.
This chapter discusses the art of grounding electrical circuits.
Upon grounding the right foot at the completion of each turn you will be in position to greatly accelerate the hammer.
However, without appropriate consideration given to grounding issues, designers risk delivering products that may be unreliable or may not work at all.
But if there's a bad connection in the ground wire system or a broken or missing wire, the grounding circuit is "open." Electrical current can;'t flow through it, and the safety system won't work.
(Electricians may establish additional grounding connections within the house -- typically to metal shielding associated with telephone and cable-TV lines.)
