The use of protective earth as a distributor of fields and radiation
2000 (English)In: Biological effects of EMFs: [Millennium International Workshop on Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields] ; Heraklio, Crete, Greece, 17 - 20 October 2000 ; proceedings / [ed] P.

Apart from being a safety arrangement, the protective earth, PE, is also defined as an equipotential plane which serves as a reference voltage for a circuit. Interest in the PE for EMC reasons is focused on an equipotential point. Still, most PE installation on site is carried out as a safety arrangement. In order to fulfill EMC standards regarding low emission, equipment is shielded and the shield is connected to the PE wire.The purpose of this paper is to show that electrical equipment distributes its electrical fields using the PE wire. Measurements have been taken on light fittings.
