Grounding System AnalysisGSA is an Engineering Software for Earth Grid Calculations and Design including Soil Analysis. GSA has been adopted worldwide by many Universities and Organisations and is highly appreciated by our clients for its Ease of Use, Quality and Technical Support Services.
GSA is a computation code for substation grounding grid design and analysis of low frequency grounding systems developed by SINT Informatica Srl. GSA considers both European standard CENELEC (European countries: EN 61936-1:2010 and EN 50522:2010) and American standard IEEE Std 80™-2000.
GSA is able to analyse the low frequency performance of earthing systems composed of more distinct electrodes of any shape, with a high level of details. It can take input data in the form of either graphical (from AutoCAD ® “dxf” files or from the integrated CAD) or numerical and render powerful graphical facilities via it’s optimised and validated computation algorithms, thus making GSA an indispensable tool for grounding system design and verification.
GSA includes a module to calculate uniform or double layer soil equivalent models starting from measured soil resistivity data.
GSA is essentially a low frequency tool but in several practical cases (with little electrodes), it can be also useful to calculate the impulse impedance of electrodes under lighting currents with an accuracy level adequate for many engineering application.
