Major Technical Consideration During Earthing System

If this is first time for you then I will suggest you have a look on my previous post about electrical earthing system. You will get 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 affects of the earth resistance. So let’s go. Some Major Technical Consideration During Earthing System: First of all current carrying capacity. The current carrying path must Read More …

Driven Electrode and Plate Electrode Types Earthing System

In my last post I discussed about Pipe Electrode Type Earthing System and Rod Electrode Type Earthing System. In this post I am going to discuss about another two methods of 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 has reasonable free from stone. For this method you need to have a driven stud for all types Read More …

Pipe Electrode and Rod Electrode Types Earthing System

In this post I will discuss about Pipe Electrode and Rod Electrode types 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 a 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 individual machine. But you Read More …
