What is the difference btwn grounding and earthing?..

Answer / usman saleem

"Grounding" is the preferred term in the US and "Earthing"
is the preferred term in England. Other countries would
likely have equivalent terms, but in their own languages.
The earth is the ground, e.g., to a farmer. When A/C power
is generated by a huge electric generator it usually
supplies electricity using three conductors all out of
phase with each other (three phase electricity) and an
additional conductor connects to ground (or earth). You can
see the three wires that result atop most power poles and
high-tension lines. When you "ground" one phase you get 110
Volts, two phases obtain 220 Volts and all three phases
obtain 440 Volts, but all circuits are also grounded to
complete the "circuit" back to the generating station.
Houses receive 110 and 220 Volts service for light bulbs
and clothes driers, respectively. Machine shops also need
440 Volts service for large motors which are the reverse of
three-phase generators. All these circuits require proper
grounding (earthing) to avoid electrocutions that could
occur if a person accidentally completed the ground (earth).

What is the difference btwn grounding and earthing?..

Answer / sanjay chakraborty

The grounding and earthing is same function made up of
materials that is electrically conductive. A fault current
will flow to 'earth' through the live conductor, provided it
is earthed or ground . This is to prevent a potentially
live conductor from rising above the safe level . All
exposed metal parts of an electrical installation or
electrical appliance must be earthed or ground .

What is the difference btwn grounding and earthing?..

Answer / engr. l. o. osuji

Both are the same. It is a matter of choice between the
two. For example, on a 132/33kV star-delta T/F the zig-zag
T/F on the delta side may be referred to as earthing T/F or
grounding T/F.
