Application of Line Surge Arresters for Switching Over-voltages in UHV Transmission Systems

ABSTRACT: Switching overvoltages (SOV) are critical for systems operating at Ultra High Voltage (UHV) level. Pre-insertion resistors (PIR) are usually used to suppress the switching overvoltages in UHV systems. PIR are effective in suppressing SOV’s, but their shortcomings prompt utilities to explore other protection schemes.  In this paper, the application of line surge arresters (LSA)...
