Existing approach to the implementation of the grounding
of technical systems
Key words: Grounding
system, touch voltage, step voltage, computer modeling, grounding
As technological and process requirements change, the demands for the quality of grounding
Using the FOP test, the grounding
system being tested must I be disconnected from the equipment being I grounded, de-energized, and isolated--but this can be impossible to do in an operating industrial facility where output and processes must be maintained.
Experience that you too, can send your roots deeply into the earth for nourishment and grounding
. You too, with steady, deep breath, can draw earth nutrients up through your roots, feeding your trunk, branches, and every part of you.
Companies can choose to protect their facilities with a variety of systems, including ungrounded, solidly grounded, low-resistance grounding
and high-resistance grounding
If you have a car frame, you can eliminate the wire returning to the low voltage terminal by grounding
the return wire to the frame, and allowing the current to flow through the steel metal of the frame.
Due to the distances between the system grounds, there can be significant differences of potential between the local grounding
Here's the rub: You won't notice that the grounding
circuit isn't working in normal day-to-day living.
connections that bridge the wiring and pipes (which constitute an additional pathway by which a current may travel) force both systems to carry precisely the same voltage -- something they might not have done otherwise.
one of them was easy: it's at the bottom of the mountain, where soil conditions are standard (3000 to 4000 psi) in bearing-surface measurements.
is accomplished by connecting the device, through a conductor that carries no current under normal conditions, to the earth.
