ABSTRACT Grounding grids are used in high-voltage stations when rocky ground makes the use of driven ground rods impractical. The characteristics of grounding grids are investigated in this paper, and the results are applied to the basic design elements of this type of grounding system.

    ABSTRACT: Earthing network is one of the most important parts of substation as it protects personnel in SS and customers in LV grid from dangerous step and touch voltages caused by earth potential rise. Earthing is essential for electric supply system to ensure safety and proper operation. Important issue that arises in the design and implementation of earthing system is earth potential rise. Earth potential rise in SS connected long cable and overhead lines is specifically regarded in this paper. Calculation of earthing resistance in the SS 35/20 kV Hrvatska Kostajnica, earth potential rise are calculated and presented. Earthing calculation prior to and after implementation of partial compensation are given and calculation results were compared with measured values.

    ABSTRACT: STUDIE SDEVOTED TOP REDETERMINATION of ground resistance on the basis of geometric dimensions and ground resistivity generally assume that the resistivity of the soil is uniform. While this assumption is frequently justified in view of the usually meager knowledge of the actual ground resistivity distribution and the mathematical difficulties caused by any nonuniformity of the ground resistivity, it also can be misleading under certain conditions.

    ABSTRACT: This paper addresses the problem of attaining low grounding resistances required in modern generating plant switchyards. A computerized procedure which considers up to three interacting ground grids is presented. This procedure establishes the minimum length of conductor required to attain a specified ground resistance. Mathematical justification of the minimizing procedure is included.
