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 Georgia Institute of Technology conducted a workshop which brought together distinguished experts in the fields of grounding, lightning, transient protection, EMP protection for electrical and electronic facilities and lightning transient protection of aircraft electronics.
