Abstract

Lightning overvoltages in low-voltage circuits in houses originating from a distribution line or an antenna have been actively studied. However, the mechanism by which damage is caused to home appliances due to a lightning strike to the ground near the house is still unclear. This paper discusses lightning overvoltages and currents in low-voltage circuits for various scenarios, such as a lightning strike to the ground, a direct strike to a distribution line, and a direct strike to an antenna. Simulations are carried out using the Electromagnetic Transients Program. From the simulation results, direct lightning strikes cause the most serious damage to home appliances, but nearby lightning strikes should also be considered when designing lightning protection schemes.
