Managing Problems in Earthing Affecting Critical Equipment – By Addressing Ups Installation / Floating Neutral

Out of various power quality parameters like harmonics, flicker, transients, voltage sags and swells, earthing is one of the critical aspect that needs to be addressed in correct manner. When it comes to proper functioning of critical equipments, earthing becomes vital ingredient . In addition to earthing of equipments, earthing of neutral also plays very important role in safety of the personnel and equipment.
