  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery},
Assuming that the representation of the lightning return stroke as a current pulse propagating along a transmission line is valid, the effects of different transmission line parameters both on the channel current and the electromagnetic fields are investigated. The transmission line parameters that are incorporated into the study are the spatial variation of the inductance and the capacitance, the channel resistance and its temporal variation and the finite conductance of the line. The results… CONTINUE READING
