Abstract:

A state-of-art review and background research reveals a number of opinions as to the preferred techniques of grounding of electronic equipment and systems. These techniques become important when protection must be provided for transients induced by lightning, electromagnetic pulses EMP, and other sources. The Systems Research and Development Service of the Federal Aviation Administration in conjunction with the Florida Institute of Technology conducted a workshop which brought together distinguished experts in the fields of grounding, lightning, transient protection and EMP protection. This report contains the papers presented at the workshop. This is the fourth workshop conducted on the subject. The papers presented at the 1974, 1975, and 1976 workshops are contained in Report Nos. FAA-RD-74-147, FAA-RD-75-106, and FAA-RD-76-104. Author
