Abstract

Soil parameter characterization and the variation of permittivity and resistivity with frequency (dispersion) and current density have been the subject of many experimental studies but significant differences in measured values are found in the literature due to different testing approaches, apparatus, and test sample composition. This article first presents a comprehensive review of this previous body of work. Then, new experiments on soils and electrolytes with test frequencies in the range 1 Hz to 10 MHz and with current densities from 1 to 35 mA/m2 are described. Such results help clarify the effects of frequency, soil moisture, electrolyte concentration, and electrode material on the measured test medium parameters. The contribution of the electrode-electrolyte interface (EEI) and the influence of current density are particularly highlighted. These findings indicate that some previous measurements may have overestimated the measured values of resistivity and permittivity due to the EEI effect. Finally, the test results are compared with soil parameter equations from CIGRE TB781.
