Data Centre HV Earthing Studies


When an earthing study is carried out, the performance and safety of 11kV earthing systems are inherently analysed as a consequence. Specialist software is used to model the suitability of the earthing systems at the Data Centre.

Whilst it is acknowledged that studies like this can be highly specialised, the conclusions of such a study, often tease out inherent hidden problems with earthing, while offering solutions as preventive measures to retain continuity of power.  It is therefore recommended that this type of report is commonly carried out to all Data Centres with complex 11kV earthing systems.
