Ground Fault Mitigation by Using Resistance Grounding


Please plan to attend this meeting of the Industry Applications Society. The speaker will be Terry Yeung, Sector Development Manager at I-Gard Corporation.

The presentation will cover Resistance grounding as a relatively simple and easy to apply method in radial distribution systems at Low Voltage and at high voltage up to 5 kV. When high resistance grounding is applied, a Neutral Grounding Resistor (NGR) is used at the supply transformer with an alarm system to detect and indicate the ground fault. This method has been in use for many years and is widely applied. In high voltage systems 15 kV to 36 kV the practice has been to use low resistance grounding. The use of resistance grounding is safe and more reliable. This presentation explores the technical and application sides of this grounding method; high, low and hybrid grounding.
