EWEA 2013: Lightning Protection as a Natural Part of Wind Turbine DesignsBy Global Lightning Protection Services
This paper discusses the necessity of including lightning protection of wind turbines in the early design phases, to ensure a robust and functional system throughout the lifetime of the turbine..
In this sense it is important to emphasize that a modern wind turbine should withstand lightning strikes without suffering unacceptable damages.
The paper presents different topics as risk assessment, engineering design tools and lightning verification tests, all to be employed in the natural and proactive wind turbine design process.
