Other engineering books cover system grounding, but Grounding Manual is the most practical study of grounding specifically for electric distributors we've ever seen. Packed with actual examples, useful tables and illustrations, it explains the engineering principles behind equipment and line grounds which are cost-effective and improve system reliability. Grounding Manual presents grounding solutions for transmission lines, substations, distribution systems, and communications cables. It explains how to measure soil resistivity, reduce step-and-touch potential for assumed faults, calculate fault currents, and protect equipment. It includes reviews of six software products including several from EPRI, which analyze grounding systems.
