Abstract:

The purpose of the Lightning Protection Study is to determine the degree of susceptibility of the Federal Aviation Administration electronic systems to induced electromagnetic pulse effects due to lightning, and to propose protective devices adequate for low voltage electronic systems. The report covers one phase of the study the measurement of inducted electromagnetic effects in typical FAA electronic cables under simulated lightning tests. The other study phases are reported in separate reports, namely analytical cable coupling, cable terminal equipment susceptibility levels, and low voltage lightning protection devices. The report consists of four brief chapters on the description of the cables tested, the cable test list plan, the measurements performed, and the results of the testing. Appendices include a brief description of lightning effects and related data, description of the lightning simulation test equipment, a detailed bibliography of simulated lightning cable testing, and the FAA specifications for the cables tested.
