Bender Ground Fault Protection - Ships and Offshore Platforms

Published 19 December 2016 | By Bender

Ungrounded systems onboard ships and offshore platforms are continuously monitored by a Bender ground detector. Connected between the active conductors and ground (the hull), the detector superimposes a small measuring voltage onto the system. If a ground fault occurs, the measuring circuit is closed and a small measauring current will flow. The measuring current is proportional to the insulation resistance (the magnitude of the ground fault), and is evaluated by the detector.
