Lightning precursory electrostatics and a critique to some protection systems
2003 IEEE Bologna Power Tech Conference Proceedings,
The paper is essentially aimed at gaining an insight into the prominent role played by a charged thundercloud in influencing pre-stroke electrostatics and, therefore, leader dynamics. Substitutive of the usual dipole source representing a thundercloud cell, a recently recommended three-level set of planar charge distributions is the electrostatic model adopted. Accordingly, when a number of thundercloud cells with similar stages of maturation are realistically arranged as to form a unique largedoi:10.1109/ptc.2003.1304133 fatcat:ea3b2ezfrzgdlg24lfjnzw2x2e
