Electromagnetic Computation Methods for Lightning Surge by Yoshihiro Baba,Vladimir A. Rakov

By Yoshihiro Baba,Vladimir A. Rakov

Presents present examine into electromagnetic computation theories with specific emphasis on Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method

This e-book is the 1st to consolidate present examine and to ascertain the theories of electromagnetic computation tools when it comes to lightning surge protection.  The authors introduce and evaluate current electromagnetic computation tools comparable to the strategy of moments (MOM), the partial point similar circuit (PEEC), the finite aspect strategy (FEM), the transmission-line modeling (TLM) procedure, and the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method.  the applying of FDTD strategy to lightning safeguard stories is a subject that has matured via many functional functions some time past decade, and the authors clarify the derivation of Maxwell’s equations required by means of the FDTD, and modeling of assorted electric parts wanted in computing lightning electromagnetic fields and surges with the FDTD method.  The booklet describes the applying of  FDTD solution to present and rising difficulties of lightning surge security of regularly extra advanced installations, really in serious infrastructures of power and knowledge, resembling overhead strength strains, air-insulated sub-stations, wind turbine generator towers and telecommunication towers.

  • Both authors are across the world famous specialists within the zone of lightning research and this can be the 1st e-book to provide present learn in lightning surge protection
  • Examines intimately why lightning surges happen and what will be performed to guard opposed to them
  • Includes theories of electromagnetic computation equipment and plenty of examples in their application
  • Accompanied via a pattern revealed software in response to the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) approach written in C++ program
