Electricity is one of the most hazardous elements that we deal with in our day-to-day lives, and it has a huge potential of creating significant damage to properties or causing fatal injuries.
Earthing can be used in simple situations such as when dealing with low voltage electric currents in residential areas to the high voltage and extra high voltage currents used in commercial and industrial applications.
Earthing is applied in several ways such as:
1. Power distribution and transmission systems – for example, earthing of transformers and power substations
2. Large projects dealing with electricity, for example, electrification of railway systems
3. Industrial applications, for example, power systems used in various industries
4. Building projects – when electricity supply is being installed
