Testing for earth ground resistance is essential for two important reasons: safety and equipment uptime. Without an effective grounding system, fault currents have no safe path to ground, and those current will find unintended paths that could include people. Poor grounding is also a cause of poor power quality....More
This paper presents the case for discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of each method for generator grounding. Medium Voltage Generators are not designed to withstand full fault current during a single phase to ground fault. This is the main reason that medium voltage generators are connected to a system with either low or high impedances. There are many methods to ground generators. To find out what these methods are, please download this free whitepaper....More
