Power continuity is essential in wind power projects where a trip-out due to ground fault can have serious economic or operational consequences.  An arcing phase-to-ground fault can totally destroy the equipment.  Consequential downtime adds to the economic loss.  Four typical grounding methods for generators and power systems are examined for these factors and the article concludes that resistance grounding provides the best protection against arcing ground-fault damage in wind power projects with distribution systems and improves reliability and availability of the power systems.
