Slide2

Concept of Earthing Systems

All the people living or working in residential, commercial and industrial installations, particularly the operators and personnel who are in close operation and contact with electrical systems and machineries, should essentially be protected against possible electrification.

To achieve this protection, earthing system of an installation is defined,

designed and installed according to the standard requirements..

Slide3

What Is Earthing

The process of connecting metallic bodies of all the electrical apparatus and equipment to huge mass of earth by a wire having negligible resistance is called Earthing.

Slide4

The term earthing means connecting the neutral point of supply system or the non current carrying parts of the electrical apparatus to the general mass of earth in such a manner that all times an immediate discharge of electrical energy takes place without danger.

What Is Earthing

Slide5

Objectives of the earthing

Provide an alternative path for the fault current to flow so that it will not endanger the user

Ensure that all exposed conductive parts do not reach a dangerous potential

Maintain the voltage at any part of an electrical system at a known value so as to prevent over current or excessive voltage on the appliances or equipment.

Slide6

Good Earthing Means

Good Earthing must have low impedance enough to ensure that sufficient current can flow through the safety device so that it disconnects  the supply ( <0.4 sec ). Fault current is much more than the full load current of the circuit which melts the fuse. Hence, the appliance is disconnected automatically from the supply mains.

Slide7

Qualities Of Good Earthing

Must be of low electrical resistance

Must be of good corrosion resistance

Must be able to dissipate high fault current repeatedly

Slide8

Purpose of Earthing

To

save human life from danger of electrical shock or death by blowing a fuse i.e. To provide an alternative path for the fault current to flow so that it will not endanger the user

To

protect buildings, machinery & appliances under fault conditions   ie. To ensure that all exposed conductive parts do not reach a dangerous potential.

To provide safe path to dissipate lightning and short circuit currents.

To provide stable platform for operation of sensitive  electronic equipments   i.e. To maintain the voltage at any part of an electrical system at a known value so as to prevent over current or excessive voltage on the appliances or equipment . 

To provide protection against static electricity from  friction  

    

Slide9

An electric shock (electrocution)occurs when two portion of a person’s body come in contact with electrical conductors of a circuit which is at different potentials, thus producing a potential difference across the body.The human body does have resistance and when the body is connected between two conductors at different potential a circuit is formed through the body and current will flowWhen the human body comes in contact with only one conductor, a circuit is not formed and nothing happens. When the human body comes in contact with circuit conductors, no matter what the voltage is there is potential for harm.

Electric shock

Slide10

The higher the potential difference the more the damage. The effect of an electric shock is a function of what parts of body come in contact with each conductor, the resistance of each contact point the surface resistance of the body at the contact as well as other factor.When the electrical contact is such that the circuit path through the body is across the heart, you have the greatest potential for death.

Electric shock

Slide11

As shown in fig the human body’s resistance varies from as low as 500 ohms to as high as 600,000 ohms. As the skin become moist the contact resistance drop. If the skin is moist due to sweat that contain salt the resistance drop further Fig 1 illustrates the amount of current that can flow through human body at three different potential differences across the body also shown is the effect of different current level both AC and DC the ultimate effect is fibrillation which cause the heart to stop and result in death.

Electric shock

Slide12

When a high voltage such as 13,800V is involved the body is literally cooked and at times explodes

Electric shock

Slide13

To analyze how an electrical shock occurs and how grounding is applied you need to look at the circuit involved.Fig 2 illustrates the basic circuit that consist of a source, a transformer or generator for all AC circuits, circuit protection, conductors(R1s), and a load (RL).

Short circuit

Slide14

A short circuit is any unintended connection Rsc across the circuit conductors between the power source and the loadSee the second circuit in fig short circuit are classified as bolted shorts, momentary shorts,intermittent shorts, or high impedance shorts. A bolted short which is rare is a very low resistant connection such as two conductors being bolted together.

Short circuit

Slide15

Most shorts are high resistant or they are momentary or intermittent. The high resistant short starts out as a high resistance or impedance connection but usually progress to a low impedance connection.In electrical system shorts are classified as phase to phase, phase to neutral , or phase to ground short.

Short circuit

Slide16

Most short are phase to ground and short which start as phase to phase or phase to neutral progress to a phase to ground shortWhen considering short circuit and protecting against the damage they can cause one needs to know what is the maximum amount of short circuit current that can flow in a given circuit.

Short circuit

Slide17

Equipment Earthing

In case of insulation failure, the primary object of connecting all the above points and apparatus to earth is to release the charge accumulated on them immediately to earth so that the person coming in contact may not experience electric shock.

Slide18

Equipment Earthing(Cont.)

The other object is that a heavy current when flows through the circuit that operates the protective devices that is fuse or CB, which open the circuit

Methods of Earthing

Conventional Earthing

Maintenance Free Earthing

Slide21

Conventional Earthing

The Conventional system of Earthing calls for digging of a large pit into which a GI pipe or a copper plate is positioned in the middle layers of charcoal and salt.

It requires maintenance and pouring of water at regular interval.     

Slide22

CONVENTIONAL EARTHING

FIGURE:.

Slide23

Maintenance Free Earthing

It

is a new type of earthing system which

is Readymade

,

standardized and scientifically

developed.

Its

Benefits are

MAINTENANCE FREE:

No need to pour water at regular interval- except in sandy soil.

CONSISTENCY:

Maintain stable and consistent earth resistance around the year.

MORE SURFACE AREA:

The conductive compound creates a conductive zone, which provides the increased surface area for peak current dissipation. And also get stable reference point.

Slide24

Maintenance Free Earthing(Contd.)

LOW EARTH RESISTANCE: Highly conductive. Carries high peak current repeatedly.

NO CORROSION:

LONG LIFE.

EASY INSTALLATION.

Slide25

Methods of Conventional Earthing

Plate Earthing

Pipe Earthing

Rod Earthing

Strip Earthing

Earthing through Water Mains

Slide26

Earthing Electrode

The resistance of a ground

electrode has 3 basic

components:

A) The resistance of the ground

electrode itself and the connections

to the electrode.

B) The contact resistance of the

surrounding earth to the electrode.

C) The resistance of the surrounding

body of earth around the ground

Electrode. It consist of three basic components:

Earth Wire

Connector

Electrode

Slide27

Plate Earthing

In this type of earthing plate either of copper or of G.I. is buried into the ground at a depth of not less than 3 meter from the ground level.

The earth plate is embedded in alternative layer of coke and salts for a minimum thickness of about 15cm.

The earth wire(copper wire for copper plate earthing and G.I. wire for G.I. plate earthing) is securely bolted to an earth plate with the help of bolt nut and washer made of copper, in case of copper plate earthing and of G.I. in case of G.I. plate earthing.

Slide28

PLATE EARTHING

Slide29

Pipe earthing

Pipe earthing is best form of earthing and it is cheap also in this system of earthing a GI pipe of 38 mm

dia

and 2meters length is embedded vertically in ground to work as earth

electrod

but the depth depend upon the soil conditions, there is no hard and fast rule for this.

But the wire is embedded

upto

the wet soil.

The earth wire are fastened to the top section of the pipe with nut and bolts.

The pit area

arround

the GI pipe filled with salt and coal mixture for improving the soil conditions and efficiency of the earthing system.

It can take heavy leakage current for the same electrode size in comparison to plate earthing.

The earth wire connection with GI pipes being above the ground level can be checked for carrying out continuity test as and when desired, while in plate earthing it is difficult.

In

summmer

season to have an effective earthing three or four bucket of water is put through the funnel for better continuity of earthing.

Slide30

PIPE EARTHING

Slide31

In this system of earthing 12.5mm diameter solid rods of copper 16mm diameter solid rod of GI or steel or hollow section of 25mm GI pipe of length not less than 3 meters are driven vertically into the earth In order to increase the embeded length of electrod under the ground, which is some time necessary to reduce the earth resistance to desired value more than one rod section are hammered one above the other.This system of earthing is suitable for area which are sandy in character .This system of earthing is very cheap

ROD EARTHING

Slide32

In this system of earthing strip electrod of cross section not less than 25mm into 1.6mm of copper or 25mm * 4mm of GI or steel are burried in horizontal trenches of minimum depth of 0.5mIf round conductor are used their cross sectional area shall not be smaller than three if copper is used and 6mm2 if GI or steel is used.The length of burried conductor shall be sufficient to give the required earth resistance (about 0.5Ωto 1.5Ω)It shall however be not less than 15 mThe electrod shall be as widely distributed as possible in a single straight or circular trenches radiating from a point This type of earthing is used in rockey soil earth bed because at such places excavation work for plate earthing is difficult
