Abstract

During a heavy thunderstorm a 6.6kV High-Voltage Motor in a thermal power plant was damaged. Preliminary investigation revealed that effects caused on rotating machines were due to the influence of Earth Potential Rise (EPR) caused by lightning currents that strikes to close elevated structures of power stations flowing through the conductive-earthed… (More)
