The main purpose of the earthing is to ensure that every electrical equipment, house and human are safe when lightning strikes. Lightning phenomenon occur scan produced high voltage and current ant it can caused electrical equipment damage and life danger. Therefore, this project will analyze the behavior of the soil. The main purpose of this project was to select the soil structure and the depth of the electrode suitable for grounding system in UniMAP. Additionally, this project will also analyze the soil resistance for grounding systems using MATLAB Software. From the result it can shows the best point for located grounding rod to ensure optimum grounding system.
