Notes

In this workshop, we will demystify the concepts
of grounding as applicable to utility networks and
industrial plant distribution systems as well as
their associated control equipment. In fact, a lot
of myths have been built around this subject,
although it is quite a simple one when
approached from basic principles. Our endeavour
will therefore be to explain the fundamentals of
grounding, which we hope will enable you to
gain a correct perspective of the subject and give
them the knowledge needed to solve real life
grounding problems.

Essentially this workshop is broken down into
System Grounding, Protective grounding and
Surge/noise protection of power and electronics
systems normally found in distribution
networks. A brief introduction to the design of
substation grounding has been included.
Detailed information on ground electrodes and
measurement of ground resistance is also available.
