Abstract

The substation equipments can be protected by shield wires and lightning rods from direct strokes
occurring due to lightning phenomenon. This paper introduces a protection scheme for substation against lightning
strokes by Early Streamer Emission Equipment and ordinary lightning rod using Rolling Sphere Method. Early
Streamer Emission Equipment is relatively good and the chances of damage due to lightning are less. The system
gives more powerful assurance against lightning strokes. Moreover, it has a simple methodology and the most
proficient equipment to plan a powerful lightning protection. This paper describes a contextual analysis of 765/400 kV
substation.
