Please read our new article based on a previous webinar! The research is focused on terrain effects on lightning.
To determine the effect, an in-depth analysis of electrostatic cross-talks and lightning interaction with the thunderstorm field in various terrains was performed. The results of computer calculations allow assessing changes in the electric field caused by the lightning upon interaction with various terrains.
A special attention is placed on the lightning interaction with mountainous terrains. The article discusses the issue of how to assess the gorge or high mountains effect on lightning protection. Another aspect of the article is the analysis of what is going on with lightnings at high-rise structures in mountains.
The author is Eduard Bazelyan. He offers methods and recommendations aimed at more accurate understanding and considering these factors in power supply systems designing. Thorough study of the article allows you to improve knowledge and develop an approach to designing efficient power supply systems considering the specifics of the terrain.
