In this paper induced voltages and currents caused by underground cables are calculated in cable sheaths and nearby metallic pipelines. The performance of several simulation methods and models are investigated in steady-state, considering also different implementations in ATP-EMTP, EMTP-RV and PSCAD/EMTDC. The analysis is extended in the simulation of transient overvoltages in cable systems, evaluating the accuracy of two widely used simulation models. The influence of different parameters is investigated, among them specifically the earth properties. Results reveal that implementing accurate earth representations, earth conduction effects have a significant impact on induced voltages at the power frequency, while for high frequency phenomena the influence is minor.
