Rule 59.4-C

 

59.4-C.    Transformers

 

Ground conductors of Transformers on common neutral systems shall conform to the requirements of Rule 59.4-A1.

On common neutral systems, each transformer installation on a branch circuit without a loop return shall be so located that there will be one or more metallic water pipe systems grounds of a resistance not greater than 3 ohms on each side of the transformers installation.

A transformer installation located on a grid section of a common neutral system requires no independent ground provided that there is a ground connection, having a resistance not in excess of 3 ohms, to the common neutral line conductor either at the transformer pole or at an adjacent pole.
