Italian term or phrase: tensione di passo
Per la tensione di contatto ammissibile UTp la norma ne stabilisce il valore in relazione alla durata del guasto (tf) come da Tab.B3 della CEI 99-3; perché un impianto di terra sia ritenuto sicuro nei confronti di un guasto a terra in media tensione occorre che la tensione di contatto che si può stabilire in un punto qualsiasi dell’impianto di terra unico (media e bassa tensione) non superi la tensione di contatto ammissibile (la norma non considera più la tensione di passo), in pratica è sufficiente che la resistenza di terra soddisfi la condizione:

step potential
Explanation:
What Is Step and Touch Potential and Reducing Resistance To Ground?

Step Potential

Step potential is the step voltage between the feet of a person standing near an energized grounded object. It is equal to the difference in voltage, given by the voltage distribution curve, between two points at different distances from the electrode. A person could be at risk of injury during a fault simply by standing near the grounding point.
