    EMC and Electronic grounding
    The electronic control systems in one power plant are digital base and separated "one point" grounding system is considered for it.
    In that power plant, the separated hole of electronic grounding is located far from control room, therefore the used cables for suitable interconnection between equipments and earth pit shall be long enough.
    The electronic system is safe against effects of corrosion and vibration also grounding system loop currents that usually observed in "multiple point" grounding systems and may cause inadvertent noises. However that control system has some EMC problems. Investigations show a 700 KHZ noise interference existence in system that has created this EMC problem in power plant control system.


    How can you explain the reason of existence of inadvertent noises?

    A coaxial cable will pick up noice like an antenna. Balanced cables might be the solution. Also check that all grounding/earthning is made with with low impedance, means as short as possible and no coiling of extra cable behind equipment. Check that all grounding points is clean.

    I would be inclined to keep digital signals on a "floating" ground and Not attached to main systems. Try common grounding on your home sound system and watch/listen to the fireworks. I mean the "ground" of the pair to your speakers. Don't blame me though!
