Earth Fault Protection

Earth Fault Protection

Author: Velimir Lackovic

Fault statistic suggests that earth faults are the most common fault type. Therefore, earth fault protection is of great importance in electrical networks. The type of earth fault protection selected depends primarily on the type of grounding method. This course describes protection principles for solidly (effectively), reactance, high resistance and resonance grounded electrical systems.

This course is suitable for engineers interested in learning the fundamentals of earth fault protection and issues related to ground protection implementation. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address key earth fault protection concepts, terms and schemes.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 3 PDH credits.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Solidly earthed system fault protection
  • Restricted earth fault protection (REF)
  • Directional comparison schemes
  • Current reversal
