Why Choose GSA_FD

GSA_FD, is the modern solution for grounding analysis calculating self and mutual impedances, in addition to all features of GSA. With a PEEC full wave numerical model, it handles any utility scale and complex grounding systems efficiently.


Why Choose NETS​

NETS, a flexible application for full meshed multiconductor and multiphase networks, excels in accurate fault current split calculations. Overcoming the limitations of symmetrical components, NETS ensures detailed fault current split calculations for grounding system analysis, asymmetrical faults, and unbalanced systems.

Bundling with GSA or GSA_FD provides the ultimate solution for analyzing grounding system performance.

A grounding system is a network of ground electrodes embedded into the earth, crucial for power infrastructure at substations, switchyards, and industrial facilities.

It facilitates equipment operation, reduces damage from lightning and faults, and focuses on personnel safety.

Yes, XGSLab’s modules interpret Wenner and Schlumberger soil resistivity measurements into appropriate strata and electrical characteristics.

Yes, GSA and GSA_FD modules provide split capabilities based on user-selected standards, though NETS offers more accuracy.

GSA_FD module evaluates complex grounding systems, considering each conductor’s self and mutual impedance, meeting IEEE standards.
