Ground System Testing and Commissioning

Ground testing is extremely important because it’s essentially the foundation upon which your entire electrical system is built. Ground system testing is conducted to ensure that new installations meet grounding specifications or that existing grounding systems continue to meet grounding specifications. Testing grounding systems require experienced engineers, and Dreiym Engineering PLLC can help.

Ground testing upon initial installation is conducted for safety purposes—a low-impedance path to ground is needed to protect your personnel and your equipment. Periodic ground resistance testing should be conducted well after installation because grounding systems deteriorate over time. You can’t do anything to deter this deterioration—it results from the ion exchanges that make grounding systems an effective safety measure. Our engineers provide ground resistance testing for your electrical ground and cathodic protection systems. Whatever your current grounding systems needs are, Dreiym Engineering can perform ground testing and commissioning for your facility using the methods detailed in IEEE 81. We can ensure that the resistance between your ground system and the earth meets the National Electrical Code’s (NEC) guidelines. 

Services Include:

  • Clamp-On Readings

  • 2-Pin Method

  • Fall-of-Potential Method

  • Testing of Existing Ground Systems
