The hangers or racks shall be designed to leave at least 25mm clearance between the cables and the
face to which it is fixed. Multiple hangers shall have two or more fixing holes. All cables shall be
saddled at not more than 150mm centres. These shall be designed to keep provision of some spare
capacity for future development.

k)

CABLES TAGS

hole of 2.5mm dia, 6mm below the periphery. Cable designations are to be punched with
letter/number punches and the tags are to be tied inside the panels beyond the glanding as well as
below the glands at cable entries. Tray tags are to be tied at all bends. On straight lengths, tags
shall be provided at every 5 metres.

l).

TESTING OF CABLES
Prior to installation burying of cables, following tests shall be carried out. Insulation test between
phases, phase & neutral, phase & earth for each length of cable.

c. After jointing.
Along with the test as prescribed in IS Code, cross sectional area shall also be checked.

35

On completion of cable laying work, the following tests shall be conducted in the presence of the
Engineer in Charge.

b. Continuity Resistance Test.
c. Earth Test.
All tests shall be carried out in accordance with relevant Indian Standard code of practice and
Indian Electricity Rules. The Contractor shall provide necessary instruments, equipments and labour
for conducting the above tests & shall bear all expenses of conducting such tests.

EARTHING
a)

GENERAL
This section covers the general arrangement of the earthing, i.e. all non-current carrying metal
parts of the electrical installation shall be earthed as per IS 3043(1987) and general
specifications for electrical works (part-1, internal) of CPWD specifications.
All metal
conduits, trunkings, cable sheaths, switchgear, distribution Board, meters, light fixtures, fans
and all other metal parts forming part of the work shall be bonded together and connected by
two separate and distinct conductors to earth electrodes. Earthing shall also be in conformity
with the provisions of Rule 32, 61, 62, 67 and 88 of IER 1956. The earth electrode shall not
be situated less than 1.5 mtr.

b)

EARTHING SYSTEMS
It shall comprise of earth electrodes, earth strips, earth continuity conductor and all earthing
conductors shall be of high conductivity copper, GI or aluminium and shall be protected
against mechanical damage and corrosion. The size of earth conductors shall not be less than
half that of the largest current carrying conductor. The connection of earth continuity
conductors of earth bus and earth electrodes shall be strong and sound and shall be rigidly
fixed to the walls, cable trenches, cable trays or conduits and cable by using suitable clamps
made of non ferrous metals.

c)

EARTHING ELECTRODES
Earthing electrodes shall be designed as per the requirement of IS 3043 (1987). The number
and size of earth electrodes shall be calculated so that under fault conditions no electrode is
loaded above its maximum permissible current density. The resistance of earth electrode shall be as
low as possible, the maximum allowable value being one ohm.
Earthing electrodes of either plate type or pipe type may be adopted. The choice of plate or pipe
electrode shall be decided according to the anticipated fault level of the network and local soil
conditions. Generally, plate electrodes shall be used for substations and large medium voltage
network and pipe electrodes for small medium voltage network and installations.

d)

Location of Earth Electrodes


Normally on earth electrode shall not be situated less than 1.5 m from any building. Care shall be
taken that the excavation for earth electrode may not effect the column footings or
foundation
of the buildings. In such cases electrodes may be further away from the building.

36

The location of the earth electrode will be such where the soil has reasonable chance of remaining
moist. As far as possible, entrances, pavements and road ways, are to be definitely avoided for
locating earth electrode.
e)

Water Arrangement
Method of watering arrangement shall comply with General Specifications.

f)

Plate Electrode
Plate electrodes shall be made of GI plate of 6 mm thick and 60x60 cm. size. The plate shall be
buried vertically in ground at depth of not less than 3.5 metres to the top of the plate, the plate
being encased in charcoal to a thickness of 15 cm. all round. It is preferable to bury the
electrode to a depth where sub-soil water is present. Earth leads to the electrode shall be laid in
a GI pipe and connected to the plate electrode with GI bolts, nuts and washers. A GI pipe of
not less than 19 mm dia shall be placed vertically over the plate and terminated in a funnel at 5
cm. above ground. The funnel shall be provided with a wire mesh. The funnel shall be enclosed
in masonry chamber of 100 x 50 cm. dimensions. The chamber shall be provided with CI frame
cover of 100 x 50 cm size. The earth station shall also be provided with a suitable permanent
identification label/tag.
Note : If copper plate is used it shall be of 3mm thickness.

g)

Pipe electrode shall comprise of a 2.5 Mtr. long 40 mm dia GI pipe buried vertically in a pit of 35x
35 cm size and filled with alternate layers of charcoal, salt and river sand and connected at the top to
a GI pipe of 19 mm, 1 Mtr. long with a funnel at the other end, 5 cm above the ground. The earth
lead shall be properly fixed to the pipe electrode with brass bolts, nuts and washers. The funnel and
earth lead connections shall be enclosed in a masonry chamber of 30 x 30 x 30 cm. dimensions. The
chamber shall be provided with a CI frame and CI cover. Proper
permanent identification
tag/label shall be provided for each electrode.

h)

INSTALLATION
All joints shall be reverted and sweated. Joints in the earth bar shall be bolted and the joints faces
tinned. Where the diameter of the bolt for connecting earth bar to apparatus exceeds one quarter of
the width of the earth bar, the connection to the bolt shall be made with a wider piece of flange
of copper jointed to earth bar. These shall be tinned at the point of connection and special care
taken to ensure a permanent low resistance contact to iron or steel. All steel bolts, nuts, washers, etc
shall be cadmium plated. Main earth bars shall be spaced sufficiently away from the surface to which
they are fixed, such as walls or the side of trenches to allow for easy connections. Copper earth bars
shall not be fixed by ferrous fittings. The earthing shall be suitably protected from mechanical injury
by galvanized iron within ground shall be buried at least 60 cm deep. The earthing lead shall be
securely bolted and soldered to the plate or pipe as the case may be. In the case of the plate, the lead
shall be connected by means of cable socket with two bolts and nuts. All washers shall be of the
same materials as the plate or pipe. All iron bolts, nuts and washers shall be galvanized.

i)

Method of Installation of watering arrangement


In the case of plate earth electrode a watering pipe of 20 mm dia of medium class GI pipe shall be
provided and attached to the electrode. A funnel with mesh shall be provided on the top for
watering the pit. In case of pipe earth electrode a 40 mm x 20 mm reducer shall be used for
accessing the funnel. The watering funnel attachment shall be housed in masonry enclosure of not
less than 30 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm. A cast iron cover having locking arrangement shall be suitably
embedded in the masonry enclosure.
37

j)

PRECAUTIONS
Earthing system shall be mechanically robust and the joints shall be capable of retaining low
resistance even after passages of fault currents.

Joints shall be soldered, tinned and double riveted. All the joints shall be mechanically and
electrically continuous and effective. Joints shall be provided against corrosion.

The earthing lead from electrode onwards shall be suitably protected from mechanical injury by a 5
mm dia GI pipe in case of wire and by 40 mm dia medium class GI pipe in case of strips. Portion of
this protection pipe within the ground shall be buried at least 30 cm deep (to be increased to 60 cm
in case of road crossing and pavements). The portion within the building shall be recessed in walls
and floor to adequate depth.

l)

TESTING

On the completion of the entire installation, the following tests shall be conducted and no earth
electrode shall have ohmic resistance of more than 2 ohm and in rocky soil not more than 3 ohms.

Earth resistance of electrodes

Impedance of earth continuity conductors as per E-3 of IEE regulations.

Effectiveness of earthing as per E-4 & E-5 of IEE regulations.


All meters, instruments and labour required for the tests shall be provided by the contractor. The
test results shall be submitted in triplicate to the Architects for approval.
