Guide for Improving the Lightning Performance of Electric Power Overhead Distribution Lines
|Publication Date:||30 September 2010|
This guide will identify factors that contribute to lightning-caused faults on overhead distribution lines and suggest improvements to existing and new constructions.
This guide is limited to the protection of distribution-line insulation for system voltages 69 kV and below. Equipment protection considerations are covered in IEEE Std C62.22™-2009.1
The purpose of this guide is to present alternatives for reducing lightning-caused flashovers on overhead distribution lines.
