Soil resistivity test for installation of Earth Mat in under ground metro station

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Electrical, Study Material

As most underground metro stations have a limited space/ land area, the earthing system for the auxiliary sub station or the feeder post or the signalling and telecom are inside the station box area, basically 300-1000 mm below the station base level. And for an earthing system which is very close to humans, we should consider the touch and step voltages that will come into effect during the fault. (For more details read GPR and step-touch voltages) That’s why the preferred earthing is Copper electrode grid earthing (also known as copper earth mats) For a good soil strata the soil […]
