    and line routing, requirements of surge protective devices (SPD), protection of equipment in existing structures. 3. GENERAL PRINCIPLES Since it is impossible to avoid a lightning strike, the application of lightning protection measures must be considered. As was stated many times in . testing/application, surge/lightning protection, and monitoring/field demonstration of distributed resources. Mr. Dorr Chaired the revision of the IEEE Emerald Book, is the Chair of the IEEE Surge Protective Devices Committee and is a member of the IEEE Working Group on Voltages at Publicly and Privately Accessible Locations.

    Introduction to System Protection If you are still awake, nudge your sleeping neighbor and tell him/her that the lecture is over and it is almost time for the next lecture, which may actually prove to be an interesting and informative lecture (unlike this one). If you are not awake, may you dream that you are on a Hawaiian beach. lightning induced GPR event, the ground reference point that electronic systems critically depend upon for diversion of “excess” energy can actually become asource of this energy. Commonly relied upon protective devices and their connected grounding systems are simply not designed to handle lightning related energy and may actually.

The function of a lightning protection system is to protect structures from fire or mechanical destruction and to prevent that persons in buildings are injured or even killed. An overall lightning protection system consists of external lightning protection (lightning protection/earthing) and internal lightning protection (surge protection).

A lightning rod (US, AUS) or lightning conductor is a metal rod mounted on a structure and intended to protect the structure from a lightning strike. If lightning hits the structure, it will preferentially strike the rod and be conducted to ground through a wire, instead of passing through the structure, where it could start a fire or cause electrocution.
