Lightning protection at wind energy plants

Identification of possible points of impact at rotor blades with a 1.2 MV surge voltage generator.

Lightning damage at wind energy plants leads to high repair costs as well as down-times. Therefore, the lightning protection of rotor blades and further equipment components is standard with modern plants. In this project information the „BINE news service" informs about the results of a research project of the Development Fund Wind Energy and the University of the German Federal Armed Forces Munich to improve lightning protection systems at wind energy plants.
