Selection of MV/LV Transformers to be Protected by Surge Arresters against Indirect Lightning Overvoltages

version 1.0.1 (22.8 KB) by n.sene

The papers addresses the problem of locating surge protective devices in a medium voltage distribution network by means of an accurate computer model for the calculation of lightning induced overvoltages and a Monte Carlo statistical procedure. The indirect lightning performance of small network cells of different configuration are evaluated and used as a benchmark for the validation of the surge arrester locations provided by a genetic algorithm procedure. The obtained results appear useful for the lightning protection design of networks
with complex topology.
