Integration of a Distributed Fiber Optic Current Sensor Setup for Lightning Detection in Wind Turbines

Abstract

With increasing height and rated power of wind turbines (WTs), the potential number of lightning strikes rises to the square of the height as well as the average lightning current peak value. To prevent consequential damages due to lightning on such structures, lightning impact should be monitored. Therefore a new method for lightning measurements on WTs… (More)
