Copper Rod for Grounding

Types of Copper Bonded Earth Rods

Do you know what helps maintain the safety of you and your electrical appliances from fault current? A metal rod called Earth Rod. These Copper Rods establish quality earthing systems in overhead, underground electricity distribution and transmission networks. They provide ground contact in all soil conditions like high voltage substations, …

TNSC Earthing System

TNCS Earthing System – Explained In Detail

TNCS  earthing systems are a type of electrical earthing system that protect people and structures from electrical hazards and ensure the safety and reliability of the installation process. TNCS (TN-C-S) systems are characterised by using a combined neutral and earth conductor (C and S), which connects the electrical installation to …

Copper Flats

Copper Flats VS Galvanized Iron Flats – Which one is better?

Earthing is a crucial aspect of electrical safety in any structure. There are a variety of earthing techniques available to enable the fault current to flow safely into the earth. Most of the time we select products that are easily available at a lower cost, but this is a wrong …

Ground Potential Rise

Ground Potential Rise Study

Scope: The result of a ground electrode impedance, referenced to remote earth, and the current that flows through that electrode impedance is known as Ground Potential Rise or Earth Potential Rise (as specified in IEEE Standard 367). The maximum electrical potential that a (substation) grounding grid can achieve relative to …

Step & Touch Potential

What are Touch and Step Potential Requirements?

To grasp the concept of step and touch potential as per IEC 62305-3 (EN 62305-3) How energy dissipates over conductive objects. Some good conductors exist that provide a path to the ground during broken pole or downed wire conditions, such as metal fences, damp soil, and puddles. Other conductors, such …

Essentials of Neutral Grounding System

Objective: Indian Standard IS: 3043 – 2018 [Code of Practice for Earthing – Second Revision] says the following: Earthing refers to the complications which arise when electricity conducts via the ground. The terms earth and earthing here are used whether (or not) the earth is employed as a low impedance …

SS Earth Rods

Importance of Stainless Steel Earth Rods

Scope: Earth rods constructed of austenitic stainless steel according to British specifications. Stainless steel rods are comparable to copper rods; however, they are more anodic than copper and can be used when galvanic corrosion is a concern. The current carrying capacity of stainless-steel rods is lesser as compared to copper. …

TT Earthing Sytem

What is TT Earthing System? Detailed Explanation

Scope   Over the last century, electrical safety standards have evolved into very sophisticated systems that encompass all components of a safe installation, including TT Earthing Systems and other types in the category. In Low-voltage (LV) Electrical Installations, the reference standard IEC 60364 is used to determine the actions to …

Lightning Conductors

What are lightning conductors & how do they work?

Lightning – a natural phenomenon as breathtaking as it is deadly. It’s a spark that bridges the gap between negatively and positively charged sections of a cloud, and its power can cause significant damage, especially to tall buildings. However, thanks to modern engineering, we have a defence mechanism against this …
