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 …

What are Touch and Step Potential Requirements?

Objective: 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, …
