Lightning is one of the most common and destructive natural phenomena that can have a catastrophic effect on substations and their components. This is especially true for MOV (Metal-Oxide Varistor) substation arresters, which are designed to protect electrical equipment from the high voltages caused by lightning strikes. When lightning strikes a MOV arrester, it can cause a surge of current that can damage the arrester and other components in the substation. This can lead to power outages, equipment damage, and even fire.
To mitigate the effects of lightning on MOV substation arresters, various strategies can be implemented. These strategies include the use of surge protective devices (SPDs) to limit the current and voltage surges caused by lightning and the installation of lightning rods to direct the lightning away from the substation. Additionally, MOV substation arresters can be designed with higher levels of insulation to protect against the high voltage of lightning strikes.
