Striking Distance

What is Striking Distance? Striking Distance is termed as the shortest distance between a downward leader and a particular structure or object. It  depends on the amplitude of the lightning current. Where ‘I’ is the minimum peak current. ‘r’ is the striking distance i.e. radius of Rolling Sphere The minimum values of peak current is […]

Why Copper is more preferable in Earthing ?

Reddish metal (Copper) is a noble metal that occurs naturally in its elemental form. And also copper is a versatile metal not only its unique properties of high electrical conductivity and high thermal conductivity but combination of these and other properties of copper. Electrical Conductivity Every metals has the properties of some amount of resistivity […]

Testing Procedure of ESE Air Terminal

In the ESE system, the internal design arrangement senses lightning down streamers and triggers upward leaders prior to other passive objects in the structure. Since the upward streamer is triggered in advance when compared to other conventional air terminals, the area protected by the ESE terminal will be larger than that of conventional terminals. NFC […]

ESE Lightning Air Terminal

ESE Air Terminal Rod is an active type lightning arrester which stimulates continuous upward leader before any other object does within its radius of protection. Due to its earlier triggering of upward leader, the area of protection is much larger when compared to a simple conventional air terminal rods. The area protected by an ESE […]

Selection of Materials for Lightning Protection System

The components of Lightning Protection System (LPS) are exposed to direct lightning strikes and corrosive atmosphere. To achieve efficiency, the materials should have high current withstanding capacity and the materials should be less corrosive. The current carrying capacity of a material depends on the cross sectional area and the materials should be selected based on […]

Lightning Protection for High Rise Buildings

Introduction: Taller buildings in general attract lightning strikes, hence an efficiently designed LPS is highly critical to safeguarding these structures from the destruction caused due to lightning. Also, such structures should make sure quality earthing systems and surge protection devices are installed to protect the lives and expensive electronic equipment housed in these structures. National […]

Protection of Protruding Roof Fixtures From Lightning Strikes

When structures are containing protruding or flush-mounted structures, the Lightning protection is designed in such a way that those parts lie within the protection given by air terminal rods mounted over the structure. The above picture depicts that the protruding structure lies within the region of protection given by the lightning rods. However, additional protection […]
