Grounding Grids for High-Voltage Stations [includes discussion]
ABSTRACT Grounding grids are used in high-voltage stations when rocky ground makes the use of driven ground rods impractical. The characteristics of grounding grids are investigated in this paper, and the results are applied to the basic design elements of this type of grounding system.

ABSTRACT: STUDIE SDEVOTED TOP REDETERMINATION of ground resistance on the basis of geometric dimensions and ground resistivity generally assume that the resistivity of the soil is uniform. While this assumption is frequently justified in view of the usually meager knowledge of the actual ground resistivity distribution and the mathematical difficulties caused by any nonuniformity of the ground resistivity, it also can be misleading under certain conditions.Transactions of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers Part III Power Apparatus and Systems 01/1955; 74(3):1230-1233.
