Abstract
When lightning strikes to the transmission towers, the equipment and the network components are jeopardized by the over-voltages. If the over-voltage magnitudes are more than the basic insulation level (BIL) of the equipment, irreversible damages occur in the system. This paper analyzes lightning over-voltages in two different nuclear power plants (NPP) by applicable modeling and simulations. In order to keep the over-voltage magnitudes below BILs of the equipment, protection ways are proposed with the surge arresters and the surge capacitances.
