Surge Arrester Industry Background

Surge arresters are devices used for the protection of electric equipment and power system installations against lightning surges and internal switching events. These systems directly divert the over voltages to the insulation or ground to protect the equipment from damage. They improve the lightning flashover rate and protects power systems of voltages more than 1 kV (1000V).
