The two types of earthing are Familiar as Equipment earthing and system earthing. In Equipment earthing: body (non-conducting part) of the equipment should be earthed to safeguard the human beings. System Earthing: In this neutral of the supply source (Transformer or Generator) should be grounded. With this, in case of unbalanced loading neutral will not be shifted.so that unbalanced voltages will not arise. We can protect the equipment also. With size of the equipment (transformer or alternator) and selection of relying system earthing will be further classified into directly earthed, Impedance earthing, resistive (NGRs) earthing.
