XGSLab (Over and Under Ground System Laboratory) is one of the most powerful software packages for grounding system analysis, electromagnetic fields, interference and lightning analysis.
- EASY: Integrated and modular program with a modern and intuitive interface and a high quality graphics. Very easy to use.
- POWERFUL: Based on a general approach and then suitable for many applications, in a wide frequency range, with arbitrary conductors network and many soil models including multilayer.
- WORLDWIDE: The only software in the market that takes into account International (IEC), European (EN) and USA (IEEE) standards.
- VALIDATED: Accuracy validated since 1990 by comparison with results from analytical cases, published research, field measurements, and similar programs.
XGSLab includes the modules:
GSA (GROUNDING SYSTEM ANALYSIS) for basic applications with underground systems (applicable in many practical cases).
GSA_FD (GROUNDING SYSTEM ANALYSIS in the FREQUENCY DOMAIN) for general applications with underground systems including larger systems, magnetic fields and interference evaluations.
XGSA_FD (OVER AND UNDER GROUND SYSTEM ANALYSIS in the FREQUENCY DOMAIN) for general applications with overhead and underground systems including electromagnetic fields and interferences evaluations and fault current distribution calculations.
XGSA_TD (OVER AND UNDERGROUND SYSTEM ANALYSIS in the TIME DOMAIN) for general applications with overhead and underground systems including currents, potentials and fields distribution in the time domain.
All modules are integrated in an “all in one” package and based on a hybrid calculation method (or “PEEC” method) which considers transmission line, circuit and electromagnetic theory combined into a single calculation model.
Hybrid methods join the strong points of the other methods and are well suited for engineering purposes because they allow the analysis of complex scenarios including external parameters such as voltages, currents and impedances. For these reasons, XGSLab can be considered a real laboratory.
