SafeGrid Earthing Software

Easy and accurate earthing design

Trusted by Companies in 40+ Countries for over 10 years

A Wide Range of Outstanding Features

All the modules you need

A simple earthing design process. Enter your data into the modules and easily switch between them to achieve a safe design.

Grids of any shape or size

Design your earthing system using the in-built editor.
Import grids drawn in 2D or 3D AutoCAD (as a DXF file).

Soil resistivity measurements

Automatic multilayer soil modelling from field resistivity measurement data sets. Analyse and compare multiple traverses at once.

Fault current distribution

Achieve a safe design by calculating the actual earth grid current from the prospective (maximum) fault level for single or multiple feeders.

Safety criteria

Determine safe touch and step voltage limits in compliance with IEC/TS 60479, EN 50522 and IEEE Standard 80.

Lightning protection module

Easily perform lightning designs based on rolling sphere method calculations.

Multiple conductor types

Model different conductor types and conductor sizes for horizontal conductors and rods.

Multilayer Finite Element Method calculations

Very accurate algorithms have been developed and proven time and time again through field current injection tests.

Grid Z impedance and GPR

Accurate calculations consider both series Z and mutual impedances (non-equipotential grid analysis) in the frequency domain.

Touch and step voltages

Calculates actual surface, touch and step voltages for comparison with permissible limits.

Plots in 2D or 3D

Analyse touch and step voltages produced by the earthing system during fault conditions.

Custom arrangements

Earthing systems of arbitrary shape, size or configurations.

Lightning protection design module

Determine the protected areas by defining the custom locations and heights of lightning masts.

Rolling Sphere Method

Automatic algorithm which determines the protected areas or zones of protection in 3D.

Protect levels

Define standard Protection Levels such as PL I (20 m), PL II (30 m), PL III (45 m), PL IV (60 m) or user-defined level.

Import site layout drawings

Overlay lightning masts and draw protection zones on construction drawings to a defined scale.

Multiple masts and equipment heights

Define any number of masts and wires (with sag) between masts. Also define groups and multiple equipment heights.

SafeGrid Lightning Protection Module Report

Advanced reporting

Beautiful, comprehensive and easy to understand reports.

PDF and Word formats

Reports are quickly produced directly to PDF and Microsoft Word document formats.

PDF underlay tool

Use the PDF underlay tool to overlay the soil voltage plots onto your construction drawings.

Include your company logo

Personalise the reports by adding your company logo image.

Custom reports

Choose the calculation results to include or exclude from the reports.

See How We Compare

We have benchmarked our SafeGrid Earthing Software results against well-known software XGSLab™ and CDEGS™. We show that the results for grid resistance in multilayer soils up to 5 layers are virtually identical.  The results have been analysed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes the main algorithm takes into account the voltage drops along conductors (quasi-static transversal impedance) due to both the self and mutual impedances and propagation effects.

Yes earthing systems comprising conductors in any arrangement.  Multiple earthing systems can be modelled.  CAD files (.dxf format) can be imported.

The fault current module is a useful tool to calculate the voltages and currents or short-circuit currents, fault current distributions or split factors. The algorithm is based on a general for of nodal analysis with all mutual impedances considered.

Complex multiple feeder configurations can be modelled consisting of cable circuits or overhead line feeders.

Yes Wenner-based field measurements can be entered and an optimal multilayer soil model calculated automatically.

Suitable for any buried earthing system from single rod in an LV application to a huge EHV substation application for DC and power frequencies.
