Lightning Studies Using ATPJuly 27-28, 2011
Lightning is the second or third most significant cause of outages on most power systems.
Mitigation of the effect of lightning is of key importance to all those responsible for system
reliability. This in-depth course is designed for those responsible for the reliability of
substations, distribution systems, and transmission systems. We will cover ways to improve the
lightning performance of distribution and transmission lines by using arresters and other means.
Who Should Attend:
- Anyone new to the industry who wishes to learn the fundamentals of lightning protection
- Standards engineers responsible for maintaining system construction and equipment standards
- Reliability engineers and other reliability personnel responsible for continuous improvement
- Substation designers, distribution system designers, and transmission line designers
- Power system operations and maintenance supervisors
- Power engineering personnel who wish to broaden their scope of system understanding
- Experienced engineers that want to learn about the latest practices in this area.
- Surge fundamentals: lightning, switching, faults, ferroresonance, line drops, and others.
- How to select the most appropriate type of lightning protection: Shielding, lightning
rods, arresters, no protection, and possibly underground.
- The difference between arrester types: Station, transmission line, distribution, secondary,
liquid immersed, elbow, riser pole, and more.
- What the ratings of an arrester really mean and how to compare one manufacturer to another.
- Margin of protection fundamentals along with insulation coordination fundamentals.
- Installation methods of arresters and shielding means:
- What is important about lead length and separation distance?
- What is a good arrester ground and what is not?
- Arresters failures: How to avoid, assess, and test in the field
- Fundamentals of Transmission Line Arrester Application and Study
- Protection of substations using arresters, shield lines, and lightning terminals
- Protection of distribution systems with arresters and other means
- How green is an arrester?
- Disposal and life cycle management of arresters
- What standards govern arresters and system improvements?
- Trends in the industry in lightning protection
- Overview of ATP Lightning Studies
- Review Arrester Overload and Failure Modes
- Protection of Underbuilt Systems with the Underbuilt Line Arrester
