The use of metal-oxide varistor surge arresters (MOVs) in lightning protection of overhead transmission lines to improve reliability is of great interest to electric utilities. However due to economic reasons, it is not possible to completely equip an overhead transmission line with surge arresters at each transmission structure. In this paper, an(More)
EHV and UHV high voltage transmission lines frequently pass through high vegetation areas as well as national forests where there is a significant risk of wildfire by natural or manmade causes. Firefighters use aerial vehicles to douse fires by dumping large amount of fire retardant liquid that is conductive, thus increasing the risk of insulator flashover(More)
