Grounding Electric Services..part 3
The word Ground refers to ground potential or earth ground. If a conductor is connected to the earth or some conducting body that serves in place of the earth, such as a driven ground rod(Electrode), the conductor is said to be grounded. The neutral conductor in a three-or-four wire service,for example, is intentionally grounded, and therefore becomes a grounded conductor.
