RESISTANCE CALCULATION Name of Project : Method used : Star - Delta Method Testing Equipment : DET4TC2 1.

Input Data:

The ground electrode being tested = E Three current probe P2 , P3 , P4 are placed at the equidistance from E with a 120 angle between them. Distance between E and P2 , P3 , P4 = 40 m Distance between P2 and P3 = 50 m Distance between P3 and P4 = 50 m Distance between P4 and P2 = 50 m Now, Using a two point measurement method. R12 := 10 R23 := 10 2. Calculations: R13 := 10 R34 := 10 R14 := 10 R42 := 10

R23 + R34 + R42 1 R1 := R12 + R13 + R14 3 2

) = 5

R0 , 0 := R0 , 1 :=

R12 + R13 R23 = 5 R12 + R14 R42 = 5

( ( (

R0 , 2 :=

R13 + R14 R34 = 5

Therefore the value of ground grid resistane is found to be R1 := Similarly. R1 , 0 := R1 , 1 := 1 2 1 2 R12 + R23 R13 = 5 R12 + R42 R14 = 5

R0 , 0 + R0 , 1 + R0 , 2 3

R1 , 2 :=

R23 + R42 R34 = 5 R1 , 0 + R1 , 1 + R1 , 2 3 = 5

Resistance at point P2 is found to be R2 := 1 R2 , 0 := R13 + R23 R12 = 5 2

( ( ( ( ( (

R2 , 1 := R2 , 2 :=

R13 + R34 R14 = 5 R23 + R34 R42 = 5 R2 , 0 + R2 , 1 + R2 , 2 3 = 5

Resistance at point P2 is found to be R3 := 1 R3 , 0 := R14 + R42 R12 = 5 2 R3 , 1 := R3 , 2 := 1 2 1 2 R14 + R34 R13 = 5 R42 + R34 R23 = 5

Resistance at point P2 is found to be R4 :=

R3 , 0 + R3 , 1 + R3 , 2 3

= 5

if R1 < 1 , "Grounding is OK" , "Grounding should be revised" = "Grounding should be revised"
