Introduction Energy or communication cables pass through concrete walls to enter the buildings. A study [4] conducted at EPFL's Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory showed that the presence of a concrete wall can significantly reduce commonmode signal propagation, and thus reduce the need for additional protections to protect equipment. When a lightning hits a building, over voltages are generated and the surge protective devices (SPD) are important components of electrical systems… CONTINUE READING
