3/15/2018 Earthing of Electrical Transmission Tower


Earthing of Electrical Transmission Tower

We should probably earth each tower of an electrical
transmission line. We must measure footing resistance of
each tower. We should take the footing resistance of tower in
dry season before stringing the earth wire and/or OPGW
(where OPGW is applicable). In any circumstances footing
resistance of the tower will not be more than 10 ohms.
We should use either pipe earthing or counterpoise for
earthing of the electrical transmission line tower. The
tower earthing lug should extend beyond the concrete base of
the tower leg. We also use lug connector in case of
counterpoise earthing. Logically we should pipe earthing to
any of the four legs of a tower but practically we should Related Articles
provide earthing to that leg which is specifically marked for Resistance of Earth

In case of pipe earthing system we fill surroundings of the
pipe with alternating layers of charcoal and salt, which
maintain the surrounding soil of the pipe moist. A details

Counterpoise Earthing

We use 10.97 mm dia galvanized wire for the purpose of

counterpoise earthing of electrical transmission tower.
Here we connect the galvanized wire with the leg of the tower
with the help of galvanized lug and the galvanized lug is fitted

with a tower leg with the help of 16 mm dia nut and bolts. The
steel wire used for the purpose must be of minimum 25
meters in length. The wire is buried tangentially under the
ground of minimum 1 meter depth from the ground level. Here
four legs of a tower are connected together with counterpoise
earth wire burried below the ground level of 1 meter depth as
already been told.
