Abstract:

The handbook provides formulas and data for evaluating coupling of the high-altitude EMP to electric power systems and to facilities served with commercial electric power. The subjects covered include coupling to power transmission and distribution lines, transient coupling through transformers, lightning-arrester firing characteristics, and coupling through the service entrance. Grounding, EMP protective measures, and testing are also discussed. The emphasis of the handbook is on the EMP effects of concern to the power user, but much of the information contained in the handbook can also be used to evaluate the effects of the EMP on electric power systems.
