In general, the sizing of earthing conductors is based on the following principles, we will discuss earthing cable size as per IEC 60364-5-54
IEC standard for instrument earthing, also referred to as grounding, play a crucial role in ensuring the safety, reliability, and performance of electrical and electronic systems. To achieve these objectives, compliance with the International Electrotechnical Commission or IEC standard for instrument earthing is of utmost importance.
Methods of Electrical Earthing include Wire or strip earthing, Rod earthing, Pipe earthing and the plate earthing implemented according to systems.
Electrical earthing, also known as grounding, is a safety measure in electrical systems that involves connecting electrical equipment and installations to the Earth’s conductive surface. The purpose of electrical earthing is to create a low-resistance path for electric current to flow into the ground, preventing the buildup of excessive voltage and reducing the risk of electrical shock or fire hazards.
