Equipotential Grounding – 10 minutes
Uses Ohm’s law to describe current flow in a de-energized overhead line during a ground fault condition. Defines the term zone of equipotential. Describes a method that can be used to establish a zone of equipotential.

Equipotential Grounding Connections – 8 minutes
Describes how grounding equipment can be used to create a zone of equipotential on a three-phase overhead line.
