Abstract

Earthing and bonding systems are essential in ensuring the safety of equipment and people. Earthing is connecting conductor from an equipment to the ground to allow high fault current to flow while bonding is a practice of joining ground conductor to minimize the voltage difference. Copper is a well-known metal for its high conductivity of current, thus, copper is widely used as earthing electrode. However, since the price of copper is quite high, copper is vulnerable to be stolen by thief. This project will analyze the performance between two conductors which are copper and galvanized iron as earthing electrode and joint cable. The main purpose of this project is to observe the potential of galvanized iron to replace copper as earthing electrode and joint cable. This project will observe the performance of these two conductors in single installation and parallel installation of earthing system. The length and diameter of these conductors will be the same and this project will be held on weather, temperature and soil characteristics. The data monitoring will be observed for eleven weeks and the result will be plotted in form of graph by using MATLAB software.
