Abstract

A computer model for the interpretation of soil resistivity measurement data collected in the vicinity of grounding systems B. Handziski2, V. Handziski' V. Dimcev2 & P. Vrangalov2 'Technical University, Berlin, Germany 2Department of Electrical Measurements and Materials Faculty of Electrical Engineering Skopje St. Cyril & Methodius University, Macedonia Abstract The accuracy of the soil parameters obtained by the interpretation of soil resistivity measurement data is essential for an accurate parametric grounding analysis. Ideally, soil resistivity measurements should be made in the absence of buried metallic structures and interpreted by computer models tailored for that purpose. However, there are cases when the soil resistivity measurements have to be made in the presence of grounding systems and to be interpreted by the computer models tailored to take into account the influence of the metallic structures. This paper presents a methodology and a computer model tailored to interpret this
