Major Technical Consideration During Earthing System

If this is the first time for you then I will suggest you have a look at my previous post about the electrical earthing system. You will get a lot of ideas for a perfect earthing system. In this post, I am going to discuss some of the major technical consideration during earthing system and the factors affect of the earth resistance. So let’s go. Some Major Technical Consideration During Earthing System: First of all current carrying capacity. The current Read More …

Driven Electrode and Plate Electrode Types Earthing System

In my last post, I discussed Pipe Electrode Type Earthing System and Rod Electrode Type Earthing System. In this post, I am going to discuss another two methods of the earthing system and those are “Driven Electrode Types Earthing System and Plate Electrode Types Earthing System“. Driven Electrode Types Earthing System: This type of earthing system you can stable where soils have reasonable free from stone. For this method, you need to have a driven stud for all types of Read More …

Pipe Electrode and Rod Electrode Types Earthing System

In this post, I will discuss Pipe Electrode and Rod Electrode types of earthing system. Pipe Electrode Types Earthing System: When you are planning for pipe electrode types earthing system then your pipe electrode diameter should be minimum 38mm (1.5”) for the GI pipe and 100mm (4”) for the cast iron pipe. Now the minimum length of the pipe electrode should be 2.5m (9”). But the upper end is at a minimum depth of 1.25 meter from the ground level. Read More …

Introduction of Electrical Earthing System

Electrical Earthing is one of the most essential parts in electrical engineering. You may deal will different types of electrical equipment and if there is no earthing system then you are at high risk. But having an earthing system is not enough. You have to calculate your overall load and individual earthing for each electrical equipment and machine. In my factory, we calculate all earthing system according to our government guideline from our outdoor substation to the individual machine. But Read More …
