GENERAL DEFINATIONS
EARTH ELECTRODE:A metal plate, pipe or other conductor or an array of conductors electrically connected to the general mass of earth.
EARTHING/GROUNDING RESISTOR:A resistor through which a system is earthed and whichserves to limit the current flowing in the event of an earthfault.
ARC SUPPRESSION COIL (PETERSEN COIL):An earthing reactor so designed that its reactance is suchthat the reactive current to earth under fault conditionsbalances the capacitance current to earth flowing from theline so that the earth current at the fault is limited topractically zero.
