Earthing for a Distribution or Transmission Line

Earthing is an important part of electrical distribution lines. Installation of a protective grounding on the power line structure creates a safe work zone. It neutralises leakages or short-circuit current and offers a simple and easy path for the current to the earth with zero damage potential. Importance of Earthing …

What is Substation Earthing? [Explained with Calculations]

What is Substation Earthing? The fundamental role of any substation earthing is to dissipate the short circuit current into the earth without drying out the area and to limit the potential gradient throughout the substation to maintain the step and touch voltages within safe values. There are two features considered …

Earthing & Lightning Protection System for Substations

In an electrical substation, Lightning Protection System is important for the smooth operation of electrical networks during lighting strikes. Lightning strikes can cause severe damages due to the surge of extra voltage during a strike that is injected into a transformer. As a result, a strike and switching can cause …
