What is the normal earth resistance?..

Answer / syed qamar abbas

The ideal value of earth resistance allowed is 1 ohm or less
for equipment's body earthing or grounding like generator,
Main distribution boards , motors etc. On other hand the
value of earth resistance allowed for lightning protection
system is 10 ohms (ideal)

there is a power transformer 66/11kV in delta-delta connection has 5 feeder coming out from the secondary side. One of the feeder in it normally loaded (loaded than other feeder)and this feeder usually trips with double OCR causing the bank transformer to trip. Now if the load of this feeder is put on other transformer then that no problems occurs on that transformer or the load. However normally all the test(IR, PI, short ckt, open ckt,grounding test and other ) has been conducted for this but evertything transformer..... I am not geting what is the actual problem...

Grounding. Dear all at one of my site we checked the amps at the earthing cable to the alternator it was found 125 to 130 A. at the neutal cable in same machine found 146A. in the same plant checked the earthing current on other alternator it was 52A, and neutral 116 A. we are facing problems with our controller and the card was damaged once. can that neutral/GND current be a reason? as there is common grounding for the Alternator,Brkr panel,Transformer?
