Paper Title: Surge Protection Against Indirect Lightning Strike For Wind Electrical Power Energy Systems
Unique Id: IJRTI1805009
Published In: Volume 3 Issue 5, May-2018
Abstract: Wind power does not pollute and is recyclable. Wind energy as a clean/green resource offers many advantages. Wind power is one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the world. The supply of wind power is unlimited and cannot be depleted. In order to reach the highest efficiency, the wind turbines are usually installed on the hills and flat areas. Therefore, they are subjected to the direct and indirect lightning strikes. Direct and Indirect lightening strokes can produce damages on electrical and electronic systems as well as of mechanical components such as blades and bearings. This paper aims to model all parts of wind turbine involved in this transient phenomena such as tower, blade, coaxial cable, control system and considering accurate and frequency-dependent model for the ground system. As wind energy is gaining increasing importance throughout the world, lightning damages involving wind energy systems have come to be regarded with more attention. Nevertheless, there are still very few studies in Portugal regarding lightning protection of wind energy systems using models of the Electro-Magnetic Transients Program (EMTP). The influence of over voltages resulting from indirect surges on control systems as the most sensitive part has been deeply investigated.
