Grounding of Battery Tanks, ESPs and VFDs, and Overall Electrical System

Grounding is one of the most critical aspects of any electrical system. It provides a safety field for personnel and a path to earth. Improper installation of ground connections can be fatal to people and disastrous to electrical equipment. SynchroGrid can provide assistance by creating a set of grounding standards that can be used on ESPs, battery tanks, and overall electrical systems.
