I've been researching on GFCI's and have an understanding of its purpose and reasons why GFCI trips. However, from a utility's standpoint, we've recently had 20+ customers (on the same circuit) calling in in 2 days complaining about their GFCI's tripping, and I can't understand why. I know GFCI's trips when it detects a differential current that is greater than its threshold, so is it possible that there is a high impedance connection somewhere along the static wire? If so, how can a lineman locate the problem in an efficient and feasible manner? Can the momentary inrush current of a switching of a capacitor bank trip household GFCI's? If so, how come it has never been a problem before until now?
