GSA is a computation code for design and analysis of low frequency grounding systems. GSA takes into account International (IEC/TS 60479-1:2005), European (EN 61936-1:2010 and EN 50522:2010) and American (IEEE Std 80-2000 and IEEE Std 80-2013) standards.

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 “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 the module SRA to calculate uniform or multilayer soil model parameters 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 applications.
