Uniform, Safe and Cost Effective Grids Capabilities


  • Optimize number of conductors with fixed rods
  • Optimize number of conductors & rods based on cost
  • Check the allowable current for grid conductors
  • Compare allowable currents against fault currents
  • Compare potentials to tolerable limits
  • Automatically use short circuit results
  • Two-layer soil configuration plus surface material
  • External boundary extensions
  • Variable weight & temperature options
  • User-expandable conductor library
  • Ground grid configurations showing conductor & rod plots
  • Reflection factor (K)
  • Decrement factor (Df)
  • Ground potential rise (GPR)
  • Ground system resistance (Rg)
  • Surface layer derating factor (Cs)
  • Optimization of number of conductors
  • Application of the field resistivity measurement
  • Calculation of the step, touch, & absolute potentials inside & outside grid
