Synopsis: Over the years, many theories and changes have been made to the approach and methodology applied by designers to minimize direct and indirect lightning strokes preventing damage to buildings and substations. Lightning strikes induce fast transient over voltages into the power system. These over voltages, if not intercepted, can damage plant and equipment.
