This highly illustrated and practical book surveys techniques available to protect LV equipment and systems from lightning strikes and other surges. After examining the physical origins and effects of these phenomena, it concentrates on the components and applications of protective measures and systems, placed in the context of current IEC and VDE standards. This unique book provides the reader with a thorough background in almost every aspect of lightning and its impact on electrical and electronic equipment. The contents range from basic discharge processes in air through transient electromagnetic field generation and interaction with overhead lines and underground cables, to lightning protection and testing techniques. This book is of value to anyone designing, installing or commissioning equipment, which needs to be secured against lightning strikes, as well as being a sound introduction to research students working in the field.
