Sub-Station Earth Grid Design

Authors(3) :-Nikhil M Kushram, Abhiranjan Singh, Sanket Patel

This project aims to present the design for earthing grid for a substation and calculation of its parameters. Successful operation of entire power system depends considerably upon efficient and satisfactory performance of substations. Hence substations in general, can be considered as the heart of the entire power system. In any substation, a well designed grounding plays an important role. Since absence of efficient grounding system can lead to malfunction and non-operation of control and protective devices, grounding system deserves considerable attention for all substations. Grounding system has to be safe as it is directly concerned with the safety of persons working within the substations. Main purpose of this project is to design safe and cost effective grounding system for HV/EHV substations situated at such locations where the soil type is not uniform in the whole substation area.
