What mean the terms Technical ground, system ground or equipment ground and how they are wired?
Technical Ground is defined in our WFTD archives:
The other two words are so generically used in practice it's hard to give a precise definition for them. Loosely they are similar concepts to Technical Ground.
Studio wiring is a potentially complex, black art. Generally speaking you want all of your equipment grounds (the grounds on individual pieces of equipment) tied to one common point. In a "simple" setup plugging everything in to a common wall power outlet achieves this (more or less).
As studios get larger and more complex this isn't always realistic. You may want to consult with a qualified electrician. Without writing an entire research paper on this subject here I may be able to more directly address your concerns if I know a little more about why you ask the question.
