The effects of ground contact resistance on the performance of overhead distribution lines are reviewed. Ground contact resistance is not negligible in many situations involving dry or rocky soil, for example, and can affect distribution lines with respect to customer voltage, losses under unbalanced loading, and neutral potential. It can also affect the voltages and currents that will be encountered by telephone, television, or other service cables that share electric distribution poles.
