The characteristics and behavior of grounding systems are important in order to minimize dangerous electrical shock. Up to this date, little publication has been made on the field test compared to laboratory and computational method. This could be due to the difficulty to carry out the field test as it requires a lot of time and high cost for man power and transportation to handle the heavy and bulky equipment. So far, most studies investigated the grounding systems under low-magnitude or low frequency test (steady-state). In this present study, the characteristic profile of grounding systems under impulse condition on two types of grounding systems configurations purposely built inside Multimedia University (MMU) area were investigated. The two types of grounding systems namely the rod beds grounding systems and the MMU combined grid with multiple rods grounding systems are located at different area. From these field experiments, the resistance of the grounding systems are obtained under steady state and impulse conditions. The results from this work provide the closest link to the real grounding systems under impulse conditions.
