Analysis of transient overvoltage phenomena due to direct lightning strikes on wind turbine blade

Abstract

The paper deals with transient overvoltage analysis of wind turbines under lightning strikes; with particular emphasis on low voltage surge mitigation, using metal oxide surge arresters. Lightning protection of modern wind turbines involves equipping the blades with metal receptors and internal down-conductors. However, there is still uncertainty in the… (More)
