The theoretical model for the analysis of grounding system encased in the foundation region in a horizontal multilayer soil is presented. By means of fictitious conductivity concept, the effects of foundation are replaced by a set of equivalent current sources. The analysis of grounding system can be carried out by combining the moment method with additional equivalent current sources. The main advantage of the proposed approach is that it can be linked with the existing codes easily. The results are compared with those found in the literature and obtained by other popular software
