Why Greymatters Consultants Use CDGEGS HIFREQ Earth Modelling Software

Soil Resistivity Testing

Clients often ask us why we use CDEGS HIFREQ instead of XGSLab or, any of the other packages available in the market. And our usual response is simply. “It’s the market leading product (Top 1%)”. So, I thought it might be useful to quantify exactly why it is the leading product and also why it […]

Wet Soil Resistivity Testing: Ninja Tricks to Spot the Enemy

Soil Resistivity Testing

Soil Resistivity Testing in the wet particularly saturated ground. Has the potential for many problems. Here are some ninja tricks to help you spot the enemy lurking in the damp… Soil Resistivity Testing is the absolute starting point for pretty much everything to do with design for Earthing, grounding and lightning protection.

Importance of Soil Resistivity Testing for Electrical Earthing Design

What is Soil Resistivity Testing

What is Soil Resistivity? Soil resistivity is a measure of how much the soil resists the flow of electricity. Soil Resistivity Testing is determining that measure. Therefore, is a critical factor in the design of systems that rely on passing current through the Earth’s surface. An understanding of the soil resistivity and how it varies […]

Electrical Earthing System Design Separation

Soil Resistivity Separation of Earths in Earthing Grounding Design

During a recent training event held by SES Technologies for CDEGS (Current Distribution, Electromagnetic Fields, Grounding and Soil Structure Analysis). A finite element analysis software suite for Electrical Earthing System Design, a number of issues were discussed. But one that crops up time and time again in the UK was that old chestnut in Electrical Earthing […]
