in modeling the high voltage substation and performing the analysis on
the impact of lightning surge on surge arrester placement in high voltage
substation using the PSCAD/EMTDC software. Modeling parameters and the
substation layout design are based and adapted from 132 kV substation
in Johor Baharu, Malaysia, courtesy of the Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB).
The model is based on single phase line model as it was suggested by the
IEEE to be adequate to represent the substation in transient analysis
simulation. The outcome of this paper would be the results of prediction
of the breakdown current and effect of surge arrester placement in terms
of voltage level measured at particular points in substation.]]>IEEE Power Engineering Society,1999CIGRE.,1991Woodford, D.,1998IEEE WG 3.4.11,1992IEC,1993Martinez, L.A. and F. Castro-Aranda,2004Goudarzi, A and H. Mohseni,2004
