Webinar Description

Accurate, Fast & Optimal Ground Grid Design

The design of ground grid systems can be a complex process, but should not require a complicated software tool. The objective is to identify and design the most adequate grounding mat geometry and size, while considering technical and safety constraints. This ensures maximum allowed touch-and-step voltages are not violated, therefore limiting electric shock-related incidents.

ETAP Ground Grid Systems provides such an accurate, fast, and flexible, yet affordable tool with field-proven results for the design of small to very large grounding systems.

In this webinar, learn how to obtain accurate and economical ground grid designs by quickly identifying appropriate ground grid layouts, efficiently conducting studies using integrated fault analysis tools.

Highlighted Topics & Discussions: 

  • Design safe and cost-effective grounding grids 
  • Perform studies and safety assessment:
  • IEEE 80 & IEEE 665- Auto-designed layout
  • Finite Element Method  - Comprehensive and detailed shapes
  • Conduct multivariate optimization of conductors and earth electrodes to reduce material cost
  • Analysis of fragmented and/or large grounding systems
  • User-friendly and intuitive graphical interface and plots
  • Convert field measurements into multi-layer soil models using Soil Resistivity Calculator
  • Import ground grid drawings from AutoCAD®

The webinar broadcast starts at 9:00 AM, Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).

This webinar will also be broadcast 9:30 AM, British Summer Time (BST, GMT+1) on May 23. Click here to register.
