Abstract: In order to protect electronic devices against the effects of lightning strikes to tall structures, detailed information about the lightning currents and the radiated electromagnetic fields are necessary. For this purpose, coordinated lightning current and field measurements are performed at the telecommunication tower on the mountain Hoher Peissenberg in the south of by: Electromagnetic field waveforms and current waveforms of lightning strokes to the CN Tower have been simultaneously measured since A new calculation model of electromagnetic field radiation is proposed. The proposed model consists of the lightning current propagation and distribution model and the electromagnetic field radiation model.
Abstract: Two different techniques (monopole and dipole) for calculating the electric and magnetic fields from a distribution of currents and charges are discussed. Both techniques have been used for calculating the fields from lightning. A simple lightning return stroke current model, consisting of a square current pulse traveling up a vertical antenna above a ground plane, is used to compare Cited by: CALCULATION OF LIGHTNING ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS: A REVIEW Rajeev Thottappillil (1) and Vladimir A.

Simultaneous measurements of return stroke current, the corresponding electric and magnetic fields at three distances associated with lightning strikes to the Toronto CN Tower were performed during the Summer of . The data have been used to test. Rajeev Thottappillil Overview Electromagnetic fields from lightning can couple to electrical systems and produce transient overvoltages, which can cause power and telecommunication outages and destruction of electronics.

Two propagation paths for the electromagnetic field to the first and to the second field measurement stations (located, respectively, km and km away from the CN Tower) were along the soil and through the Toronto city, whereas for the third location ( km away) the propagation path was nearly entirely across the fresh water of Lake by: This paper presents the results of a radiated electromagnetic field due to lightning strike to a tall tower sitting on a mountainous terrain when considering both the first and subsequent return.

Simulation results are performed for an observation point located 50 m from the base of the channel (or tower, when present) and for three cases, namely (i) a lightning strike to ground, and (ii.
A solution is presented for the electromagnetic fields radiated by an arbitrarily oriented current filament over a conducting ground plane in the case where the current propagates along the filament at the speed of light, and this solution is interpreted in terms of radiation from lightning return by: In Antenna-Theory-type models (e.g.
) known as AT models, the strike object and the lightning channel are represented using thin wires. The Maxwell’s equations are numerically solved using the method of moments  to find the current distribution along the lightning channel, from which the radiated electromagnetic fields can be computed.
Abstract: We calculate vertical electric field and azimuthal magnetic field at different elevation angles and distances associated with lightning strikes a tall object.
Simple and exact expressions for electromagnetic fields are derived when the current reflection coefficient at tall object top is zero and return stroke propagation speed in the lightning channel is equal to the speed of light.
 On the basis of a distributed‐source representation of the lightning channel, the mathematical formulations of the so‐called engineering lightning return stroke models are generalized to take into account the presence of a vertically extended strike object.
The strike object is modeled as a lossless uniform transmission line, and the reflection coefficients are all assumed to be by: (2) Electromagnetic fields from lightning strikes to tall towers are largely determined by the tower and only to a lesser extent by the channel.
Consequently, electromagnetic fields associated with strikes to tall objects are less model‐sensitive than those corresponding to a strike to by: Lightning strikes to the Toronto CN Tower have been observed since Sincethe lightning current derivative resulting from strikes to the CN Tower and the corresponding electromagnetic.
The interaction of lightning with the ‐m high CN Tower in Toronto is modeled using the antenna theory model. A simple lossless wire structure is used to represent the tower.
