Abstract [en]

The exact solution to the electromagnetic fields generated by electric dipoles located above a finitely conducting ground plane was obtained by Sommerfeld. He presented his results in the form of a set of integrals. Since the numerical solutions of these integrals are time-consuming, attempts have been made to find approximate solutions to these integrals. In this chapter, various approximate solutions and procedures that have been used to calculate electromagnetic fields of return strokes over finitely conducting ground will be presented together with their limits of validity.
