Stochastic Effects of Potential Lightning Impact on Safety Systems
There is a general consensus that a transmission line under the ground is less prone to the induction effects caused by a nearby lightning flash. However, the low threshold operation energy levels of modern electronic equipment can be attained in the transmission line due to coupling of electromagnetic fields radiated by the lightning, even if the line is underground. There are numerous references, e.g.  – , in which the influence of a lightning discharge on above ground power lines and low-voltage installations is investigated. Yet, there is a lack of information on the behaviour of lines under the ground. Therefore a more detailed investigation of induction effects is required for this case.
