Abstract:

This handbook addresses the practical considerations for engineering of grounding systems, subsystems, and other components of ground networks. Electrical noise reduction is discussed as it relates to the proper installation of ground systems. Power distribution systems are covered to the degree necessary to understand the interrelationships between grounding, power distribution, and electrical noise reduction. The information provided in this handbook primarily concerns grounding, bonding, and shielding of fixed plant telecommunications-electronics facilities however, it also provides basic guidance in the grounding of deployed transportable communicationselectronics equipment. Grounding, bonding, and shielding are approached from a total system concept, which comprises four basic subsystems in accordance with current Department of Defense DOD guidance. These subsystems are as follows a An earth electrode subsystem b A lightning protection subsystem c A fault protection subsystem and d A signal reference subsystem.
