Surge Protection and an underestimated risk
This system consists of external lightning protection and internal surge protection. This
The purpose of an external lightning protection system
- Use of an air-termination system to intercept direct lightning strikes
- Down-conductor system used to safely discharge a lightning current
- Earth-termination system distributes the lightning current in the ground
Elements of surge protection systems
- Separation distances
- Earth-termination system
- Down conductor
- Lightning equipotential bonding (interconnecting all isolated conducting parts of the installation by means of surge protective devices)
- Air-termination systems
