Guide for Improving the Lightning Performance of Transmission Lines

This Guide covers all factors affecting the lightning flashover rate of overhead transmission lines with a phase-to-phase voltage exceeding 38 kV, and an average conductor height exceeding 10 m. These factors include, but are not limited to, lightning activity and stroke characteristics, the stroke attachment process, soil characteristics, insulation strength, line surge arresters, traveling wave analysis, corona, pre-discharge, overhead shield wires, shielding from nearby objects, induced voltages from nearby strokes, and reducing the impact of a flashover. Tower and pole electrical characteristics and grounding methods are addressed. Both AC and DC transmission lines are addressed. The scope excludes medium-voltage distribution lines and low-voltage secondary circuits. Lightning effects on substations, underground cables, and utilization facilities are also excluded. This guide does not explain or evaluate theoretical methods, but does provide guidance for their practical use in line design.

Guide for Improving the Lightning Performance of Electric Power Overhead Distribution Lines

This guide identifies factors that contribute to lightning-caused faults on overhead distribution lines and suggests 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.
