By using maps of EF and MF strength distributions at PTL and high-voltage substations operation obtained as a result of measurements and calculations of the EF and MF strength as well as by using reliable maps of the protective grounding systems, plans of the safety movement of the high-voltage substations' technical personnel and placement of equipment especially sensitive for possible electromagnetic exposures will be prepared.
External protective grounding is required to provide a low ohm contact with the "ground" in most cases.
Some examples of events that cause single fault conditions are interruption of protective grounding or one supply conductor, external voltages on data ports, and failure of an electrical component.
