A safe earthing system design has two objectives; to provide a means to carry normal and fault current without exceeding equipment limits or adversely affect continuity of service and to reduce the risk of a person in the vicinity of an earthed facility being exposed to the danger of a critical electric shock.
The purpose of this document is to provide a better understanding of Fault Loop Impedance, also referred to as Earth Fault Loop Impedance so that the requirements of AS/NZS 3000 Wiring Rules for safety, design, installation and testing of electrical installation may be met.
Accurately calculating voltage drop and cable size will save you time and money. We show you How and Why.
