The author of this article has 20 years experience in power installations, testing, control and maintenance. Let’s see which advices he does give us to keep it safe and effective…

Introduction

A good grounding system should provide the maximum safety from contact, electrical system faults and lightening. For a grounding system to perform efficiently over long periods of time, it should be designed and installed using reliable materials and proven techniques.

grounding practices for safety and power quality 1

Grounding is the most important factor that governs the safety and the quality of a power system.

That’s on what Steven Mill wants to write today. Will you agree with his guidelines for safety and power quality?

“Grounding, also known as earthing, provides a safe way for the fault currents to pass on to the ground (neutral). This avoids sudden voltage spikes in the distributed network system, safeguarding the electrical equipment from permanent or premature failure. Grounding systems are generally designed keeping low-impedance paths in mind.

When a fault occurs, a low-impedance current flow path can result in discharging high volumes of current into the ground pretty quickly, keeping the equipment safe. Grounding also plays a vital role in transferring transients caused due to lightning strikes into the ground safely and quickly.”

Following are the recommended grounding practices according to me and maybe to you all:
