IEEE Systems Technical Conference on Industrial and Commercial Power 2005.
At present there are no industry standards or recommended guidelines for the light rail transit dc Overhead Contact System (OCS) design that deal with lightning protection. Derivations of lightning intensity and lightning stroke surge energy are provided. Discussion of lightning stroke to OCS components and consequently flashing over to ground is included in this paper. Analysis of surge overvoltage at the junction of OCS to underground positive supplementary cable is established. Lightningdoi:10.1109/icps.2005.1436371 fatcat:tl57x2a3lng4zpfshsgfco5mp4
