! ! ! When studying unbalanced system operation how a
system is grounded can have a major impact on the
Ground current does not come into play during
balanced system analysis (since net current to
ground would be zero).
Becomes important in the study of unbalanced
systems, such as during most faults. 21 ! Grounding, cont’d
! Voltages are always defined as a voltage
difference. The ground is used to establish the
zero voltage reference point
! ground need not be the actual ground (e.g., an airplane) During balanced system operation we can ignore
the ground since there is no neutral current
There are two primary reasons for grounding
22 ! How good a conductor is dirt?
There is nothing magical...
