Surge Protection for Low Voltage Systems

Surge Protection for Low Voltage Systems

Edited by Alain Rousseau

Low-voltage equipment is designed for handling low voltages at consumer-level. This includes computing and telecommunications systems, power distribution grids and PV systems, and EV charging facilities.

Exposure to sudden high voltage surges, for example, from switching or lightning, can damage or destroy low-voltage equipment. Protection of low-voltage equipment and systems from such phenomena is thus vital for human safety as well as preventing damages, and so understanding the processes and protective countermeasures is of great importance.

This book offers a systematic and thorough treatise of the topic for researchers in industry and universities as well as utility experts and advanced students and more generally for all people involved in electromagnetic compatibility or designing surge protection systems and lightning protection systems. The book aims to provide answers to all readers' questions from the simplest to the most complicated, including guidance on the application of surge protective devices (SPD) illustrated by many cases studies.

Following an introduction, chapters cover lightning and surges, risk assessment, standard environment, surge protection (surge protective components and surge protective devices), and their applications, new trends and unsolved challenges.

About the Editors

Alain Rousseau is the president of SEFTIM, a company based in France but specialized in lightning and surge protection worldwide. His previous assignments include EDF, the French national utility. He is the Chairman of French AFNOR lightning protection and surge protection standard committees, the Chairman of the CENELEC lightning protection and surge protection standard committees as well as the Chairman of the IEC surge protection standard committees. He is a member of many standard committees for lightning and surge protection and especially in charge of risk assessment, thunderstorm warning system and surge-protective devices. He is running many seminars and trainings worldwide to share his 38 years of experience in that field.
