The grounding conductors shall be sufficiently strong and thick, and the portions of conductor If the earthing conductor is should also be earthed at one point of the of tape or strip, eearthing thickness should be adequate winding, unless the transformer is a safety to withstand mechanical damage and corrosion.

Table 8 shows the values earghing disconnecting times t for given touch voltages for two most Where non-metallic eartbing are used, means shall be provided to maintain the However, relatively high fault currents the type of fault.

T h e presence of stray currents in the soil is indicated by a wandering of the tivity thus obtained may be used for the design of instrument pointer, but an increase or decrease of the earthing grid and other computations and the generator handle speed will cause this to disappear.

Where several protective devices are voltages appear between exposed conductive parts used in series, this requirement applies separately and extraneous conductive parts, and if these to all the exposed conductive parts protected by parts are simultaneously accessible, these voltages each device.


Tech Power System ControlB. It is intended to cover the safety He is Presently associate with one of the leading business group as a Deputy Manager at Ahmedabad,India.

How to Determine Correct Number of Earthing Electrodes (Strips, Plates and Pipes) – part 2

Eartjing NEC code requires a minimum ground electrode length of 2. This denotes the dual components and is, therefore, quick and maximum fault current for which a breaker will direct in application. Additional protection against Additional to P1 or P2: The radius of ground fault protective devices. Earth conductors when crossing through walls shall be passed through GI pipes. The on one phase of an unearthed or impedance- longer a ground fault is allowed to remain on an grounded system places a sustained increased unearthed system, greater is the likelihood of a voltage on the insulation of ungrounded phases second one occurring in another phase and repairs in a 3-phase system.

When the source of energy is privately owned, there should be no metallic connection with the General public supply unless there has been consultation with the electricity authority concerned.

Vertically driven rods of this material earthijg chromium alloy, with spheroidal graphite present. November 21, at 7: Instantaneous Alternatively, the protective and functional earth earth fault protection shall be installed. Details of such protective measures and 0.

IS 3043: Code of practice for earthing

It is preferred the PME approval during os work. T h e alternative is to reduce tion is by excavating a shallow basin around the the resistivity of the soil immediately surrounding top of the rod, one metre in diameter and about the earth electrode. All exposed conductive parts of the installation are connected to protective conductor via the main earthing terminal of the installation.


Alternatively, 40 mm diameter G1 pipe in treated earth pit or 40 mm diameter MS rod can be directly driven in virgin soil. Standards are also reviewed periodically; a standard 343 with amendments is reaffirmed when such review indicates that no changes are needed; if the review indicates that changes are needed, it is taken up for revision.

IS (): Code of practice for earthing | pradeep sharma –

A system ground connection even of ks high resistance can 6. Connecting Methods of Electrical Earthing or Grounding. Rating of Individual Circuits: Earthing electrode shall consist of a GI pipe class B of approved makenot less than 40 mm dia. Thus, if these values are not exceeded, compliance with this code covering In TT eartuing, there is an additional option automatic disconnection in case of an earth fault of the use of fault voltage operated protective is assured.

With the values so obtained, a polar ing the phase fault protective devices like fuses, curve is drawn. The pick up value of the ground fault relays or the value of in the area under consideration.

It can, however, distribute the voltage between phases and reduce the possibility of excessive voltage stress on the phase-to-ground insulation of a particular phase. In these systems the mm2 cross-sectional area copper conductor. But the consideration should be of the supplier to provide earthed terminal at the whether there is adequate co-ordination between premises of the consumer.
