Continuing the theme for lightning design. I was having a technical discussion with a delegate, during a seminar in Germany. The question popped up regarding Lightning design on an AD plant (AD = anaerobic digestion). This site, with long-buried cable-runs, between plant areas. The delegates question, “What about the buried cables?”
What do we do about Lightning protection for buried cables in Lightning design?”
The question was not aimed at surge protection, but at physical protection of the cables from a direct lightning strike. And, before you say what? Yes, buried cables are at risk from direct strike attachments.[Read more…] about Lightning design for buried cables – really?
