Paper on power grounding for audio and video systems
« on: April 03, 2013, 12:35:28 am »

SurgEx has put up a paper authored by Jim Brown on electrical systems for audio and video.

It covers a lot of bases and was contributed to by a who's who experts (besides Jim Brown) including Bill Whitlock, Bruce Olson, Pat Brown, and the late Neil Muncy. It doesn't get much better than that group on that topic.

This is a good paper.  It touches on using twisted pairs for the power wires (not the ground wire) in conduit as a way to reduce radiation conduits carrying power to conduits carrying audio cables (Page 26) but it doesn't mention the big advantage of those twisted power wires. They don't couple voltage to the ground wire by the "conduit transformer" effect.  This is a big cause of difference voltages between ground and ground at different points.

Bump...

I am interested in reading this paper after rereading The Sound Reinforcement Handbook's section on grounding...I was left with the feeling that I want more.

Anyways, the link seems to have been changed. The ".pdf" extension suggests that you just click and read, however this link leads to a website requesting your location.

Can anyone help me find the paper? Thanks!

The link takes you to the Surgex site, click on "Education" and the paper should be the second entry.
