we can use GI strips only for home purpose.when we recomend
for companys and transformers cu strips are more prforable
bcoz of its conducting capacity and with standing capacity
of heat and bending quality of its propotion.
Electrical peoples widely used cu strips instead of GI
strips for transformer neutral,because whenever unbalance
currents occurs in the line it have to flow to the
ground,for this we need high conductivity material.thats
why we are using cu. strip instead of GI strip.usually
copper is an high conductivity material than GI material
no issue in using GI strip for transformer earthing, but the problem is the GI strip used should be of sufficient size while copper strip used can be of reduced size, so places where space constraints occur, copper strips are used, moreover economical considerations are also important in chosing the strips. It won't affect the transformer performance if GI is used instead of copper.
We know that, in case if there is a faulty insulation,or
sc, the current is bypassed to earth through the earth wire
that has low resistance.Actually, what will happen to that
current that flows through gnd?In that case,if we come in
contact with that faulty appliance, wont that current flow
through us as we form a closed path by standing in gnd?Is
grounding a safety measure?
