  • In order to clarify the response of overhead distribution lines to direct lightning hits, experimental facilities were installed at the UHV Shiobara Testing Laboratory of CRIEPI. A lightning impulse current with a crest value of 18 kA and a waveform of (2/11) mu s was generated through the impulse current generator with a high internal resistance of 400 Omega . This impulse current is not easily affected by the conditions of a distribution line side. Protective effects of surge arresters and an… CONTINUE READING
