Electrical Repairs for Two Tripping GFCI

Electrical Question: I installed a sub panel{100 amp. panel} off a 200 amp panel, ran 3 wires from main panel, at sub panel I installed 2 grounding rods and installed separate ground bar. what would cause the GFCI to trip in 2 different locations when i turn off ceiling fans on different circuits? something that is common on all circuits is the ground. What is this telling me? Thank you.
