AbstractThe disparity in a range of traditional and contemporary earthing design approaches and the resultant variation in the cost of implementation has been observed by many and has led to a number of studies since the 1960’s, examining the level of risk imposed upon a person by a power system asset in a faulted state. In addition, driven by Work Health & Safety (WH&S) legislation a new safety paradigm is evolving incorporating an explicit requirement to demonstrate due diligence in managing risk imposed upon staff and the public. This paper introduces the findings of the joint Cigre/CIRED working group B3:35 regarding how and why quantified risk analysis (QRA) may be applied to earthing system design.
