Advancing Earth Resistance Testing for Transmission Towers: A Simplified Procedure from AEMC Instruments

11:00 am - 11:30 am at Knowledge Hub

Join us for an informative exploration of the challenges posed by earth resistance measurements in transmission networks and an introduction to the AEMC Instruments Model 6474 GroundFlex® Field Kit.

Earthing arrangements of transmission networks utilize overhead conductors to provide an effective path for lightning to dissipate to earth, creating a parallel network of structures, a unique challenge that conventional test methods cannot accurately account for. This leads transmission operators to resort to indirect calculations using soil data or expensive disconnection procedures involving line crews. Discover how the GroundFlex® Field Kit overcomes challenges, offering an efficient solution to streamline earth resistance measurements and ensure the safety and reliability of Australia’s power transmission networks.

Our discussion will delve into the intricacies of earth resistance testing in transmission, providing insights into various earthing arrangements used when constructing transmission towers and critically examining the limitations associated with traditional test procedures. We will explore how the GroundFlex® Field Kit navigates the unique challenges posed by interconnected transmission structures while still producing accurate measurements, ensuring the performance of the earth electrode system meets design and compliance requirements.
