Lightning Protection System
Lightning is an electrostatic discharge between cloud to cloud and cloud to ground during a thunder storm. A Lightning Protection System routes high energy through a defined path and dissipates energy into an earthing system.
A Lightning Protection System (LPS) consists of air terminal, Conductor Cables referred to as down-conductor and earthing system. Indirectly it includes surge protection device and spatial shield.
High voltages produced by lightning discharges flow into sensitive electronic instruments and communications systems. Lightning and surges (transients) cause losses of electrical and electronic equipment. Detailed study and analysis on lightning and surges provide solutions to protect equipment and minimize losses/damages.
