Analysis of Space Charge Generating Devices for Lightning Protection: Performance in Slow Varying Fields

  title={Analysis of Space Charge Generating Devices for Lightning Protection: Performance in Slow Varying Fields},
  author={Farouk A. M. Rizk},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery},
This paper starts with a review of anode corona modes with particularly streamer-free glow known as ultra-corona, with the view of exploring its application in lightning protection. Due to the inherent intensification of the ambient electric field atop a tall structure, strict conditions have to be imposed on the streamer-free space charge generation and the stability of that mode of corona when exposed to rapid field variations due to remote lightning. A novel ultra-corona electrode satisfying… CONTINUE READING
