The lightning risk

There are up to 100 flashes every secondon the surface of the Earth.

 

The study of the phenomenon highlights 3 large families of risks from lightning strikes :


• Direct lightning strike: The main feature of lightning is first the flow of a huge electric current circulating in the matter because of extensive damage to structures.

• Indirect lightning strikes: The power electric currents involved causes induced phenomena and electromagnetic fields that cause the destruction of electrical and electronic equipment.

• conduction phenomena: During a lightning strike on the ground, we see that the electric charges are dissipated in the ground and create a rise of electric potential. The potential difference (voltage) between two given points in the ground or surface will allow current flow.

 

Lightning has many dangers and consequences of a lightning strike are cumbersome (spectacular damage, made fires, destruction, explosions, death ...). To protect themselves, the implementation of a system of protection against lightning is needed.

The system protection against lightning consists of an outdoor installation of protection against lightning to protect against direct lightning strikes and a indoor installation of protection against lightning to protect against indirect lightning strikes.
