Electrical Earthing System

Electrical Earthing System

Definition of Electrical Earthing The process of transferring the discharge of electrical energy directly to the ground using low resistance wires is known as electrical grounding. Earthing is carried out by connecting the non-current or neutral part of the equipment from the power supply system to the ground. Galvanized iron is mainly used for earthing. […]
