This paper deals with an advanced electromagnetic radiation approach for analyzing the time-domain performance of grounding systems under pulse excitation currents. The model of the grounding systems presented within this paper is based on the homogeneous Pocklington integro-differential equation for the calculation of the current distribution on the grounding system and Lorentz gauge condition which is used for the grounding system transient voltage calculation. For the solution of the Pocklington integro-differential equation, the indirect boundary element method and marching on-in time method are used. Furthermore, the solution technique for the calculation of the grounding system transient voltage is presented. The numerical model for the calculation of the grounding system transients was verified by comparing it with onsite measurement results.
Key words: grounding system, transient current, transient voltage,
