Modeling Lightning Attachment to Tall Towers
2007 (English)In: Piers 2007 Beijing: Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium, Pts I and II, Proceedings / [ed] Kong, JA, 2007, 1051-1056 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Lightning return stroke resulting from the downward leader attachment to tall towers is modeled as a point current source in series with the lightning channel and tower. Assuming a quasi-transverse electromagnetic field structure, expressions for the current at the top of the tower, at the base of the tower and along the tower are presented.
