Mitigating Lightning Outages on 138 kV Transmission Lines

There are several means of improving the lightning performance of transmission lines, ranging from extraordinarily expensive to moderate.
Stephen G. Lodwig, Project Engineer, Sargent & Lundy, will present Mitigating Lightning Outages on 138 kV Transmission Lines at a panel session on Tuesday, April 22, at 1 p.m.

This presentation compares different means of improving lightning performance and the costs and benefits. A low cost means of improving line performance that has been applied for several years with excellent results is highlighted.
