Neutral Grounding Resistors
In many low and medium voltage systems, the system neutral may not be available. This is specifically true on Delta and ungrounded Wye Connected systems. To be able to ground these systems, grounding transformer (Zigzag or Wye-Delta type) can be used to create a neutral, which in turn can be connected to ground either directly, or more commonly, through a Neutral Grounding Resistor. These combinations are known as artificial neutrals and in each of them is possible to install a Neutral Grounding resistor.
The resistors must absorb a great energy for very short time, few seconds, and as components of the security system they must assure a high reliability. For this reason it is fundamental design them optimizing the weight of active material (stainless steel) of the resistor elements according to the maximum acceptable heating overtemperatures.
Each TELEMA Neutral Grounding Resistor is designed and manufactured to meet the technical specifications issued by the customer.
