Reproduction of lightning electromagnetic field waveforms by engineering model of return stroke

  title={Reproduction of lightning electromagnetic field waveforms by engineering model of return stroke},
  author={Yoshihiro Baba and Shigeru Miyazaki and Makoto Ishii},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility},
In this short paper, a new "engineering" model of subsequent return stroke has been proposed. In the model, the propagation characteristic of a channel current follows the Diendorfer and Uman (DU) model in the bottom region but a current pulse attenuates further in the upper region. This model has succeeded in reproducing all the features of reported typical electric- and magnetic-field waveforms associated with natural subsequent lightning and triggered lightning.
