Electrical Earthing and Grounding system

The process of transferring an instantaneous discharge of electrical energy directly into the ground using a low-resistance wire is known as electrical grounding. Electrical grounding is done by connecting the non-current part of the equipment or the neutral conductor of the power system to the ground. Galvanized iron is mostly used for grounding. Grounding provides a simple path to leakage current. The short-circuit current of the device passes to the ground, which has zero potential. It thus protects the system and equipment from damage. Electrical equipment mainly consists of two current-carrying parts. 

These parts are neutral to the system or frame of the electrical equipment. From the grounding of these two non-current parts of the electrical system, grounding can be divided into two types. In neutral earthing, the neutral of the system is directly connected to the earth by means of a GI conductor. Neutral grounding is also called system grounding. This type of grounding is usually provided to a system that has a star winding. 

For example, neutral earthing is provided in generators, transformers, motors, etc. Such type of earthing is provided to electrical equipment. The non-current part of the device, such as its metal frame, is connected to the ground by means of a conductive wire. If there is any fault in the device, the short circuit current will pass through the ground through the wire. Protect your system from damage.
