Lightning is an atmospheric discharge and one of the major causes of power system outages. This issue crops up frequently, accounting for as much as 40 percent of the total outages experienced. Such outages translate into a significant loss in revenue, increased liabilities and can lead to many unsatisfied customers. Consumers are demanding fewer interruptions and improved reliability.
Hence, there is an urgent need to manage the risks pertaining to lightning in power plants.
In order to do this properly, electric power companies should not only install lightning protection systems but implement a full and extensive lightning risk mitigation plan, which begins with a risk assessment and includes a customized design unique to the facility, followed by proper installation, and continual maintenance and inspection. This approach can save companies and customers millions of dollars in the long run.
