The paper presents the statistical data of the significant parameters of lightning flash, collected by many researchers over many years around the world. The significant parameters of a lightning flash are: peak current, waveshape and velocity of the return stroke, the total flash charge and /spl int/I/sup 2/dt. Negative first strokes have traditionally been considered to produce the worst stress on the system insulation. The subsequent negative strokes have significantly lower peak current but… CONTINUE READING
