ground conductor

An electrical conductor which provides an electrical connection between (a) the frame of a piece of equipment or part of a system and (b) a ground bar or ground electrode.

The result is current flow crosses in the space between the two conductors at the wave leading edge and returns to the source on the ground conductor. Note that in a transmission line, the current flow surrounds the space carrying the energy.

As a result, for example, the switching frequency of the VFD(s) is superimposed on the phase to ground voltage (i.e., common mode voltage) and "seen"throughout the facility via the ground conductor. The result can be the disruption of susceptible equipment and the destruction of bearings in VFD fed motors, as the common mode current ground path is the motor.
There were presented the expressions of the currents flowing to ground through the towers and the currents in every span of the ground conductor in two cases: uniform, respectively non-uniform tower impedances and span lengths.
The three conductors (i.e., A, B and C), are the first ground conductor, signal conductor and second ground conductor of the three-wire transmission line, respectively.
From the physical point of view, the microstrip antenna contains an active plane made from resonant elements, dielectrically separated by a ground conductor plane.
When the bed has a power cord with a three-prong plug, be sure that the electrical resistance of the safety ground conductor and the level of leakage current (i.e., line conductor to safety ground and neutral conductor to safety ground) meet applicable standards.
The total inductance of the return path depends on the number of magnetic field line loops around the ground conductor that come from the current in the ground path, and the number of field line loops around the ground conductor that come from the signal path.
(4) Interestingly, more ground return current can flow along the substrate's surface than through the coplanar ground conductors. In such cases, the skin losses in the substrate will be larger than the losses in the ground conductor.
