Grounding Systems and Their Implementation

The isolated star ground system is the most popular implementation of technical grounding for the purposes of grounding sensitive electronic equipment. This approach has been in practice for many years and while it is not a perfect solution, it is the solution that presents the least compromises. The paper documents the current approach as implemented in a number of large installations and is part of an on-going AES effort to document appropriate practices with regard to the control of noise in audio : systems.
