Input to software

The grounding system in the substation is very important. The functions of grounding systems or earth mat include:

Ensure safety to personnel in substations against electrical shocks.

Provide the ground connection for connecting the neutrals of stat connected transformer winding to earth ( neutral earthing ).

Discharge the overvoltages from overhead ground wires or the lightning masts to earth. To provide a ground path for surge arresters.

Provide a path for dischag the charge between phase and ground by means of earthing switches.

To provide earth connections to structures and other non-current carrying metallic objects in the sub-station (equipment earthing).

In addition to such a grid below ground level, earthing spikes (electrodes) are driven into the ground. They are connected electrically to the earth grid, equipment bodies, structures, neutrals, etc. All these are connected to the station earthing system by earthing strips.

If the switchyards have a soil of low resistivity, the earth resistance of the earthing system would below. If the soil resistivity is high, the mesh rods are laid at closer spacing. More electrodes are inserted into the ground.
