The electric field effect on angles of copper-type down-conductor


Mohd Ariffen, Amizah and Ab Kadir, Mohd Zainal Abidin and Gomes, Chandima and Jasni, Jasronita and Md Arshad @ Hashim, Syahrun Nizam (2015) The electric field effect on angles of copper-type down-conductor. Applied Mechanics and Materials, 793. pp. 24-28. ISSN 1660-9336; ESSN: 1662-7482


This paper is to study the effect of electric field on an angle variation of copper down-conductor due to voltage and current transient. Down-conductor which informs of numerous material, shape and dimension are mandatory for diverting the lightning current from air termination system to the grounding system in sheltered building. Hence, a numerical analysis method is applied emulating the comprehensible and particular model according to ordinarily used in the manufacturer’s datasheet specification. A rigorous assessment in term of electric fields was reviewed in comparison with the critical breakdown value of air for a crucial study. Later, a foremost angle is proposed for the installation of down-conductor in order to achieve a reliable protection system.
