Mains power loop impedance measurements

Measurement of earth loop impedance and determining the Prospective Fault Current (PFC) are critical for safety and formĀ  integral parts of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) guidelines like standard IEC 60364 (and its various national equivalent standards). The prospective short circuit current (PSCC) or available fault current or short circuit making current is the highest
