GND = ground or earth


Explanation:
Masse = earth, which is the UK English term, equivalent to ground (the NA English term) for earth potential. 'Masse des Ground' is I think just a confusion.

GV = Gebäudevertieler = main distribution panel (where the main fuses or circuit breakers are located and all the branch circuits are connected to the external mains cable)
