    APPENDIX B (ADDITION)

    GUIDELINES FOR GROUNDING OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENTThe following guidelines may be applied in the design of instrumentationgrounding systems. The standard of reference is IEEE 1100, 1999,Recommended Practice for Powering and Grounding Electronic Equipment

    1. Grounding system consists of four (4) distinct, solidly (e.g.: galvanically)interconnected functional subsystems. They are as follows:

    a. NEC 250 described fault and personnel protection grounding subsystems,including the earthgrounding conductors (green wires), earth groundingelectrodes (generally in the form of a plantwide grounding grid) and relatedgrounding electrode conductors. This subsystem is also called the powersystem ground or the AC safety ground, and is installed following theguidelines of PDVSA 90619.1.091, Puesta a Tierra yProteccin contraSobre tensiones. Outside the scope of this specification.

    b. Signal reference structure (SRS), consisting either of a signal referencegrounding plane (SRGP) or a signal reference grounding grid (SRGG), andinstalled following the original equipment manufacturers instructions and therecommendations made in chapter 8 of IEEE 1100, 1999. The function of theSRS is to provide an effective high frequency grounding system forprotection of electronic equipment against damage or interference causedby power system faults or lighting strikes.

    c. Lightning protection subsystem, installed per PDVSA electrical guidelines.This subsystem is outside the scope of this specification.

    d. Telecommunications, data transmission and signaling circuit surgeprotection grounding subsystem, as installed per the original equipmentmanufacturers instructions, the requirements of the NEC andrecommendations made in chapters 8 and 9 of IEEE 1100, 1999. Outsidethe scope of this specification.

    2. SRS shall be installed as per IEEE, 1100, chapter 8.5.4. See below a summary listof recommended practices for installing a Signal Reference Ground Grid, extractedfrom IEEE 1100, 1999, par. 8.5.4.8

    a. Follow the NEC and other related applicable codes and standards for safegrounding. There is no conflict between personal safety grounding andeffective higherfrequency grounding for electrical systems and theirassociated electronic equipment.

    b. Select a suitable signal reference grid approach and assure that it isengineered, installed and maintained properly.

    c. Permanently and effectively bond the signal reference grid to all accessiblebuilding steel and to each metallic path (e.g.: conduits, raceways, cable

    trays, pipes and ducts) that cross into the SRG in any plane or within 1.8 m(6 ft) of the SRG.

    d. If a single point of entry for power, grounding cables and other metallic itemsinto the space exists (e.g.: physical ground window or bulkhead), thensinglepoint grounding of the SRG is acceptable. The electronic loadequipment installed on the SRG may be multipoint grounded or single pointgrounded to the SRG, depending on the signal frequency of interest.

    e. Bond the signal reference grid to each piece of electronic equipment and toany other electrical or mechanical equipment located on the SRG.

    f. Bonding connections to the SRG should be as short as practical with nosharp folds or bends. Flexible flat straps are preferred to the use of roundconductors.

    g. Where in accordance with manufacturer requirements, more than onebonding conductor for each piece of equipment should be used. Theseconductors should be connected to opposing corners of the equipment andto the nearest, but separate points on the SRG. These conductors shouldbe short (less than 0.5 m) and of different lengths (at least 20%).

    h. Electronic equipment should not be installed nearest to the outer edges ofthe SRG if practicable. Instead, this equipment should be installed one ormore SRG conductor intersections (about 1 m) towards the center of theSRG . . . HVAC equipment and panelboards should be connected to any SRGconductor, or to the outermost SRG conductor. Where feasible, criticalequipment should be located and bonded to the SRG greater than 1.8 m (6ft) away from building steel or other potential lightning current or sideflashpaths.

    i. All separatedly derived systems serving equipment located on the SRGshould have their power grounding point (i.e.: neutraltoground bond)connected to the SRG by a suitable bonding strap, This connection is inaddition to the required connection of the grounding electrode conductor tothe grounding electrode (AC safety ground).

    j. All HVAC equipment, its associated piping, panelboards, switchboards,transformers and similar electrical or mechanical equipment within theprotected area should be bonded to the signal reference grid.

    k. No special or supplementary grounding connections should be made toremote or dedicated earth grounding points, nor should there be any similarattempt to provide any form of separate earth ground paths to or from theSRG or any equipment installed upon it.

    l. All interconnecting communications, data and power cables should lay on orvery close to the SRG.

    m. Construction documentation should be complete in all details, including theproper grounding and bonding of HVAC equipment, piping, raceways, andsimilar items, The engineer preparing the documentation should not expectinstallers to complete the design.

    3. Single point dedicated instrumentation grounding (tree structure) shall beconsidered only for small installations of analog instrumentation. Instrumentationgrounding system shall be firmly bonded to the AC safety ground.

    4. Separate grounding electrodes intentionally not bonded to the power systemgrounding are strictly forbidden. This is usually known as clean ground, signalground, instrument ground. This type of installation is forbidden by NEC, sinceit may cause extreme and hazardous voltage conditions to exist between differentlygrounded metal objects during power system faults and lightning activities.Furthermore, as explained in IEEE 1100, 1999, this type of installation does noteffectively protect against EMI.

    5. Signal or shield grounding bars shall be solidly bonded to cabinet frames.

    6. Cable tray systems shall be part of the SRS, as per IEEE 1100, Sc. 8.4.12

    7. Raceways, external metal cladding of armored cables and metal conduits shall bepart of the SRS, as per IEEE 1100, 1999, section 8.4.8.

    8. Cable tray systems shall be solidly grounded at entrance to control building.

    9. For connections to the SRG, short length (less than 0.5 m) flat grounding strapsshall be used.

    10. Grounding straps shall be affixed to metal conduits and armored cables by meansof grounding bushings, in order to insure a low impedance bond.

    11. Metallic junction boxes shall be solidly bonded to plant ground by means of flatgrounding straps.

    12. Junction box sub panels (back plane) shall be solidly bonded to ground. Fornonmetallic junction boxes, a grounding strap bonded to external grounding lugshall be used.

    13. UPS System shall be grounded as per IEEE1100, 1999, Sc. 8.5.2.

    14. Shields for instrumentation analog, pulse and digital signals shall be grounded atcontrol room cabinet.
