Earthing is the process of connecting a conductor, such as a metal rod or plate, to the Earth’s surface to establish an electrical connection between the two. This connection allows for the flow of electrical current between the conductor and the Earth, which can then be used to power devices or provide a grounding point for electrical circuits.
Earthing is a simple and effective way to improve the safety of electrical devices and systems. By establishing a connection between the Earth and a conductor, earthing can help to dissipate electrical charges that can build up on devices and circuits. This can help to reduce the risk of electrical fires and shocks, and can also improve the performance of electrical equipment by reducing electromagnetic interference.
