Lightning protection of wind turbine generator systems and EMC problems in the associated control systems

Conference:

Abstract

On the 8th and 9th of March 1994 an invited group assembled at the Centro Ricerca Elettrica of ENEL in Milan to discuss lightning protection of wind turbine generator systems. Wind turbines are tall structures and are often located in high level thunderstorm areas and positioned on the top of hills. Consequently they are highly exposed to lightning and cases have been reported of damages and malfunctioning following lightning strikes. The damages have involved from one side the blades and the structure and from the other side have affected the performance of the inner electric/electronic parts. In the following the main aspects of interest are mentioned. The economic impact of lightning depends on the probability that a given wind turbine is struck by a lightning. This probability depends on: the lightning flash density of the territory; the geometry of the wind turbine; the installation site orography; the presence of adjacent structures. Several models and criteria are available for the evaluation of the probable number of strokes to wind turbines. (EG)
