This How To… shows you how to carry out a typical substation grounding design using the AutoGrid Pro software package. A step-by-step approach is used to illustrate how to use the program to input your data, carry out the computation and explore the computation results.
A simple grounding problem is illustrated in the topic entitled Simple Grounding Problem Description.
A grounding design analysis using AutoGrid Pro is normally carried out in steps as follows:
Step 1: Starting AutoGrid Pro
Step 3: How To Define Project Properties
Step 4: Soil Resistivity Data Entry
Step 5: Grounding Grid Design
Step 7: Safety Analysis
Step 8: Plots & Reports
Step 9: Process
Step 10: Results Interpretation
Step 11: Exponential Grid Design
