P998 - Guide for Direct Lightning Stroke Shielding of Substations
Project Details
This guide describes the general nature of lightning and discusses design methods for placement of masts and shield wires to provide direct stroke shielding of outdoor substations.Tables, formulas, and examples are provided to calculate effective shielding from direct lightning strokes. This guide specifically does not include: 1) every shielding design method that may have been developed 2) protection from surges entering a substation over power or communication lines 3) personnel safety issues
