The project will develop an Excel based earthing design tool that can be used easily by distribution planning engineers and connections designers to design the earthing for a secondary distribution (11kV/400V) substation.

This project uses the outputs from the HV/LV Earthing Transfer IFI project (reported under ENA Collaborative Programme section).

Currently, the only tools available to carry out earthing studies are very complex and costly, and therefore difficult to use by distribution planners and connections designers. This project will address this deficiency by providing a basic earthing design tools that encapsulates the complete earthing design process.
