This paper presents a general overview of the principles of electric shock and the systems of protection used to prevent it in electrical installations. Although mainly built around the United Kingdom Regulations, its principles can be applied to any country. The paper first discusses electric shock and the effects of electric current on the human...

... conductor connecting the exposed conductive parts to the extraneous conductive parts is called the supplementary bonding conductor. Figure 5 shows an example installation where there are two electrical controllers (e.g., controlling escalators) and a pipe and a piece of trusswork (representing extraneous conductive parts). The use of the supplementary equipotential bonding is required when the exposed conductive part and the extraneous conductive part are accessible simultaneously. ...

The current global trend in the distribution networks is to use Distributed Generation (DG). The coordination problem between protection devices is a challenge which faces DG insertion to the distribution network. In this paper, the effect of DG on the distribution networks protection system is investigated. The real network of the North Delta Elec...
