1050 - Guide for Instrumentation and Control Equipment Grounding in Generating Stations

The typical environment in a generating station provides many sources of electrical noise such as the switching of large inductive loads, high fault currents, electronic drives, and high-energy, high-frequency transients associated with switching at transmission voltage levels. The increasing use of solid-state equipment and microprocessor-based control systems in these applications introduces a number of specific concerns with respect to electrical noise control. This document is a guide that discusses methods for the grounding of instrumentation and control equipment and their associated circuits in this environment.
