How is the grounding of a transmission line done?
The grounding shall be effected by making about 325 mm dia and 3850 mm deep pit at a distance of not less than 3650 mm diagonally away from the stubs and filling in the pits with finely broken coke having granule sizes not more than 25 mm thick. The coke shall be maintained up to a distance of 150 mm from the pipe on all sides.
What do you need to know about substation grounding?

What is the difference between neutral, grounding and earthing?
But In the TT Type Power Distribution System ( in India) Neutral is only earthed ( here it is actually called Grounding) at distribution source ( at distribution transformer) and Four wires ( Neutral and Three Phase) are distributed to consumer.
What’s the difference between grounding and unbalanced connection?
When we take out the neutral for a three phase unbalanced connection and send it to ground, it is called grounding. Grounding is done to balance unbalanced load. While earthing is used between the equipment and earth pit so as to avoid electrical shock and equipment damage.
Why do you have to do grounding in service equipment?
If one would always make the earth connection in the Service Equipment, it would always be according to Code. And it would always be easily accessible to an insurance agent/electrical inspectors inspecting the electrical wiring, and to electricians troubleshooting future grounding issues if they arise.
Which is the correct formula for electrical grounding?
Grounding is, in essence, the control of abnormal voltages or currents through the proper application of Ohm=s Law: E = IR (Simplified Form) E = IR + jIXC+ jIXL Grounding is the control or minimization of R in order to reduce the effects of E & I. Improper grounding can cause more harm than no grounding.
Where does the grounding electrode connection take place?
It says the grounding electrode conductor connection shall be made at any accessible point from the load end of the service drop or service lateral to and including the terminal or bus to which the grounded service conductor is connected at the service disconnecting means. See exhibit 3.
Which is more dangerous, improper grounding or no grounding?
Grounding is the control or minimization of R in order to reduce the effects of E & I. Improper grounding can cause more harm than no grounding. Misunderstood grounding often leads to the installation of improper grounding systems that are either ineffective, or even worse, dangerous. Electric Shock:
