XGSLab GSA Tutorial - A Grounding System Analysis Applying the EN 50522 Standard
This video follows the XGSLab tutorial documentation for the GSA module incorporating the EN 50522 standard. In the tutorial, a substation grounding system is subjected to a fault resulting in a ground/earth potential rise at the grounding system. We also model an adjacent tank buried in the earth that is a recipient of voltages transferred through the soil. In the video we use the Soil Resistivity Analyzer to determine a soil model from Wenner resistivity measurements, then proceed to import our grounding systems for the substation and the buried tank from an existing DXF. The fault current split tool is used to calculate the fault split, reducing the total fault contributing to the ground/earth potential rise. Safety plots are generated based on the permissible touch and step voltage limits with regard to EN 50522 standard.
