Grounding amp bonding of electrical systems NFPA

Grounding is the electrical system s connection to the ground itself Article 100 of the NEC defines ground as the earth Section 250 4 A 1 states that grounded electrical systems shall be connected to earth in a manner that will limit the voltage imposed by lightning line surges or unintentional contact with higher voltage lines and that will stabilize the voltage to earth
