The main propose of this project is to study the effect of various bio-degradable recycled waste materials to improve soil resistivity ρ in grounding system. Also, it is to come up with new additive biodegradable waste materials which are not affecting the environment. The new additive materials are easy to get and safe in term of touch or use in hands. The previous grounding enhancement materials such GEM causing problems to the environment such pollution or destroy plants. That is because; it has a high amount of salt and carbon. In this project, it is going to design and construct five AC substations models, aluminum grid 1m2 with 0.5m depth for testing new earth enhancement materials HASA “new additive materials” then compare with the commercial ground enhancement material "GEM". In addition, it is using a research area for the experimental activities. HASA materials are going to be formed and treated to be effective for long time and easy to maintenance. It is to use FOP three point methods for electrode resistance measurement. Also, the measurement will be taken in different weather condition, to study the effect of weather on electrode resistance. This project is providing new additive materials with high performance and low electrode resistance to get perfect grounding system. HASA gives low electrode resistance as soil additive and high performance. New HASA materials are low expensive beside that the availability of the materials.
