Abstract

In this study, an equivalent model based on time domain response is proposed in order to obtain the characteristic of the human body impedance. The human body is considered as a RC network representing the skin impedance and the internal impedance of the human body. The advantages of using estimated model are reduced complexity and providing a suitable analysis of human impedance. It is essential to know the relevant information of the electrical impedance of the human body for designing protection equipment. The numerical examples indicate that the proposed approaches can estimate the RC values of the human impedance circuit. The research is based on the human body model in the IEC 479 standard.
