We’ve written previously about why we use CDEGS HIFREQ and (X)GSA_FD for earthing studies. Also, the reasons to invest in the top 1% of tools, knowledge and consultants. But once you’ve invested in building the model to understand what earthing is required, what are the other things you can do with this model. Additionally, answer other questions you might have?[Read more…] about Not Only Earthing Studies. Other things you never realised YOU could do!
In his previous blog, Ian explained our decision to work with XGSLab, on the basis that it is an equally capable tool as CDEGS, that is much easier to use. In this blog, I’m going under to hood, so to speak. Comparing CDEGS with XGSLab to show you some real-world examples where CDEGS and XGSLab give almost identical results.
Therefore, in all of these examples, we have completed and verified the earthing design for these sites and found good agreement between the modelled results and the post-installation measurements. On this basis, we can say that XGSLab matches CDEGS for accuracy, and both tools have good agreement with the real-world measurements.[Read more…] about Comparison between XGSLab and CDEGS
