To apply the appropriate new grounding system to domestic power system, safety has to be guaranteed under the given circumstances. It is not possible to decide the safety of grounding systems by the experimental test because safety experiments directly relate to the human life and the installed electric machines. Therefore, the computer simulation program to decide the safety of grounding systems based on the IEC standard systems, has to be developed. This paper proposes the computer simulation based method to decide the safety of grounding system with the concepts of touch voltage, step voltage, human resistivity, and applied electric current according to the several conditions of human body located in the corresponding grounding systems. The proposed method is implemented by Matlab/Simulink and Visual C++ programming tools for its visualization.
