Grounding Systems Design and Testing for Critical Facilities

No one questions that the grounding system for a facility is critical. Along with assuring equipment operation and power quality, it dissipates electrical surges collected by surge suppression (AC, RF, Telco) and lightning protection systems. This presentation covers the basics of two common testing methods, presents a one-line electrical diagram explanation of test theory and discusses common mistakes.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand how a grounding system protects critical facilities 2. Analyze different types of ground testing methods 3. Learn why to ground and how it provides tower protection and equipment protection 4. Be able to differentiate between electrode choices and pros and cons
