      I'm not an electrical engineer, how much ground would you need to "ground" something. How much does compensation matter? Like does clay ground better than top soil?

        around 10 feet in the ground

          where i grew up, it was 3 feet to meet county code but that whole county was a frickin bog.

          TT main earths are bad. If after it's installed the resistance is too high for you to pass you can dump bucket of water on it and suddenly it does. TNCS is far superior, TT systems have no place outside of the third world or rural areas.

        Is it African or European soil?

        It depends on the application, and conditions of the soil.

        It's more about connecting to the actual earth than it is the amount or type of dirt.

        like a meter of copper rod in the ground

        the ground works as a massive conductor leading back to the substation.

        you put a ground rod in it and measure resistance if it's above certain value say 15 ohm you put the next one 6 feet away and keep putting them and linking with one wire untill lowered enough.

    In electric grid, ground is actually just connected to neutral. It also happens that neutral is at various points connected to your soil, probably for some reasons like removing any DC voltage component which can occur naturally.

    Guys, it's not about the soil.
    It's about making an electrical connection directly with the planet, which happens to be soil.
    Earth wires in your house and the neutral wire are connected to a star point right under the meter, which is connected to a stake driven into the ground.
    The idea is to keep the potential difference of metal exteriors of appliances close to zero with respects to earth's electrical charge. So that means if the earth's charge is elevated, then everything connected to it also elevated, keeping the net difference between earth and appliance zero. That way you don't get zapped when touching your fridge. It also dissipates atmospheric charge build up from the grid, or shunts lightning discharges to ground.

      so what if I put metal rod in a bucket, but sideways?

        then you spill the dirt and achieved nothing

      Then we would have to move to space stations to not get shocked by the Earth.

      So if I elevated the voltage of the planet, would everyone get shocked as they touched any electrical appliance?

        No but you might make the earths magnetic field slightly stronger or slightly weaker. The real reason we ground so we don’t disrupt the planet’s delicate magnetic field that is our only shield against cosmic radiation

          Magnetic fields are generated by currents, not by electrostatic potentials.

          Yeah except that one time we nuked it to see what would happen

    There's no circuit there, so current can't flow. That thing only raises the electric potential of a bunch of dirt.

      wrong ac can flow via capacitive coupling

        Well, yes, but it's an almost insignificant coupling at mains frequency.

    Where does this 'earth' electricity go? Straight to the core?

    • 6 months ago

      It doesn't go anywhere. The current that flows is the Earth supplying electrons to the grounded equipment.

      Back to the supply transformer through earth. This is the complete circuit. Current does not go to earth, it goes through it

    It works you just need a lot more ground than that.
