Earthing is one of the most widely used electrical safety measures in daily industrial production, work, and life. Users are generally unfamiliar with earthing protection measures. Any problem in earthing of the distribution system may pose a threat to the safety of personnel and equipment. There are two kinds of earthing, namely, functional earthing and protective earthing. Functional earthing includes working earthing, logic earthing, ...
