For the successful implementation of a lightning protection system, grounding electrodes plays a significant role. Proper grounding is an important safety measure and results in uninterrupted operations. The Earth grounding system helps in safely dissipating electricity from lightning to the ground. Ground wires are typically copper wires and can be bare or insulated.
Purpose of Grounding Rods
A grounding rod is designed to stabilize the excessive voltage and transfer it to the ground from the network of grounding rods. Not only that, these rods also helps to dump static charge (usually from lightning) into the earth. The excess of static electricity within electronic equipment, such as home computers, can create operational problems. Grounding wires help in protecting the equipment as well.
Where does a Grounding System Terminates?
The main aim of the grounding system is to get electricity flow to the ground. This is achieved by connecting the earth ground wire to the grounding electrodes in the ground. It can be done with the help of metal water supply pipes or through metal rods driven into the ground.
