Distribution Line Safety - Videos and Related Books



One of the purposes of grounding an overhead line during maintenance work is to protect workers if the line becomes energized. This 29-minute video shows how an isolated or de-energized overhead line can become energized, and uses Ohm’s law to determine current flow in a grounded overhead line that has become energized. Also covers grounding procedures that protect workers from fault currents.
