Dear all …. m shridhar awasthi having 3 year's of experiecnce in MEP-field. so this time i m facing lot's of interview's to get better opportunity.
So it happened in one of them… interviewer whe asked to me about the Earth strip size calculation….i replied-earth strip size should be half of phase conductor size….
But he replied there should be any formula to get exact size…if suppose u are going to earth a pannel..u used copper cable and want to earth through GI strip…so would this do work??…if no…then hw would we get earth strip size..
Kindly suggest and help me to enhance my knowledge.
If I understand this correctly you are going to ground a panel. In the USA we follow the National Electric Code. Per the code, the minimum size equipment grounding conductor is dictated by a table in the NEC. Section 250, table 250.122. It is based on the overcurrent protection on conductors feeding the panel. No calculations required. – Alton Tupa
