Grounding practices that have generally been accepted by the electric utility industry as contributing to effective grounding systems for personnel safety and equipment protection in generating stations are identified. A guide for the design of generating station grounding systems and for grounding practices applied to generating station indoor and outdoor structures and equipment, including the interconnection of the station and substation grounding systems, is provided.

IEEE Guide for Protection, Interlocking, and Control of Fossil-Fueled Unit-Connected Steam Stations
Information regarding the essential subsystems that make up a fossil-fueled unit-connected boiler-turbine-generator (BTG) station is presented. Typical interlocking, control, and protection for operating the subsystems in a coordinated order to ensure proper startup and safe shutdown are described. The primary purpose is to provide a basis for qualitative evaluation of overall design of a unit-connected fossil-fuel plant, and for writing general operating guides of an educational nature to aid in acquainting personnel with boiler-turbine-generator systems.
