Conversion of the Barrow Powerplant to Low-Reactance Generator Grounding

May 23, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Jim Gray has long noted that there have been times when we’ve had a serious dearth of electric power topics for our Section meetings. So, he has decided to serve us up a meaty-sounding one:  “Conversion of the Barrow Powerplant to Low-Reactance Generator Grounding”.

 No, it’s not about the actual earth-grounding of the Plant (though that is always a substantial topic in high-arctic locations like Barrow). Instead, it explores the pros and cons of the various schemes for generator grounding, ranging from not grounding at all, to solidly-grounding, and various impedances in between.
