Electrical Grounding Applications

Power Utilities

SAE will ensure that your grounding system meets or exceeds all relevant safety standards and all electrical codes. Relevant standards include IEEE 80* Guide for Safety in AC Substation Grounding and IEEE142 – Recommended Practice for Grounding of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems, NEC, CEC and OESC/ESA**.


Green. Ground. Protect.

Grounding Challenges in the Renewable Energy Sector:

  • Service interruptions caused by lightning strikes due to poor or inadequate grounding strategy and systems
  • Damage to equipment and infrastructure by power system ground faults
  • Risk of premature failure (due to corrosion) of grounding systems built with traditional techniques and materials
  • Personnel safety hazards due to improper or deficient grounding systems
  • Sensor and control system failures due to unwanted ambient electrical noise and EMF radiation that can disrupt equipment and cause service interruptions

What Applications Will Benefit

  • Wind farms
  • Solar farms
  • Hydroelectric facilities
  • Electrical substations

Telecom / Broadcast

Enhanced Asset Reliability.

Grounding Challenges in the Telecom and Broadcast Sector:

  • Lost time and revenue costs caused by equipment and infrastructure damage due to lightning strikes and AC power main ground fault currents
  • Noise and electrical interference caused by improper grounding practices and shared systems whose individual grounding systems may conflict with each other thus producing a degraded signal quality or costly service interruption
  • Safety of onsite personnel and corporate liability exposure
