Abstract:

A model is developed for computing the safety and reliability of electrical equipment in a lightning environment. The model specifies the parameters of lightning that are pertinent in causing damage to equipment. The report indicates how the model is to be used for testing equipment to determine failure levels. Using these failure levels, it also shows how to compute the actual safety and reliability to be expected in field use, where lightning is a threat. Author
