XGSLab GSA FD Tutorial - A Grounding System Analysis Applying IEEE Std 80
This video follows the XGSLab tutorial documentation for the GSA_FD module incorporating the IEEE Std 80-2013. In the tutorial, a substation grounding system is subjected to a fault and transfers the ground/earth potential rise to the connected steel factory grounding system. 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, steel factory, and adjacent site entrance from an existing DXF. The fault current split tool is used to quickly determine fault split calculation, 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 IEEE Std 80-2013.
