Day/Session Overview

Day 1 of the course, the emphasis is on revisiting the underpinning principles behind earthing and the steps required in acquiring the appropriate data necessary for an Earthing Study.

Earth resistivity measurement and interpretation techniques for uniform and multilayered soil models are discussed. The concept of soil model equivalence and soil layer resolution is explained using computer simulations.

Split factors/reduction factors are explained and illustrated with practical examples.

Standards are discussed. Their origins, geographic application and how they compare to help inform decisions on which standards to use in your design.

Day 2 has a practical emphasis, building models using XGSLab software. Importing CAD files, processing the soil data, setting up the model geometry, setting conductor properties, working through the various types of energisation, calculating Step and Touch voltage thresholds before debugging your model ready for computation.

Day 3 continues the practical theme with the analysis of the previous day’s computations. Exploring the plotting capabilities, EPR/GPR, 3D, complex area and linear outputs and distribution plots to locate which parts of the electrode design work the hardest.

Day 4 sees the sum of the parts coming together. Electrical safety concepts and issues related to body currents, body impedances and foot resistances are discussed for power frequency and high-frequency electric exposure. The question is answered, “Is your design successful?” The designs are analysed for safety, and methods on optimising, mitigation and troubleshooting are explained and discussed.

XGSLab Certification

We’ve been using XGSLab for HV earth system design for the past few months. I wish we had invested much earlier! We’re very impressed with the software and very much appreciate the support from GreyMatters and SINT. Thanks all

Excellent and informative course

This has been an excellent and informative course. The interaction of both instructors has been wonderful. The encouragement to explore using the software, the understanding of earthing as well as the additional reading material has been fantastic. The coursework was set at the right level and allowed us to go away and practice what was

…a great earthing software course

Overall, this is a great earthing software course including all important information regarding earthing. Like the idea of a course structure, reference to the standards and practical experience examples are very good. Would prefer to have a little more math regarding the PEEC method. One of the best courses I have taken by far.
