  • KS C IEC 62561-2 표준은 피뢰시스템 구성요소로서의 도체 및 접지극에 관한 요구사항 및 시험에 대하여 규정되어 있다. 외부 피뢰 구성자재는 대기 중 혹은 대지에 직접 노출되어 있기 때문에 전기적 성능과 기계적 성능을 모두 만족해야 한다. 또한 피뢰도체와 접지극은 재질과 크기, 형태가 모두 다르기 때문에 각각의 요구사항에 부합할 수 있는 성능을 지녀야 한다. 본 논문에서는 일반적으로 많이 쓰이는 재질과 단면적을 가지는 접지봉으로 성능시험을 진행하였으며, 접지봉의 재료는 스테인레스강에 구리를 코팅한 동복강선으로 구성된다. 시험 결과 점착 시험 및 굽힘 시험에서 모두 크랙 및 코팅이 벗겨지는 것을 확인할 수 있었다. 코팅에 크랙 혹은 벗겨짐이 발생하면 지중에서 접지극의 부식이 진행되고, 접지저항이 높아져 전기적 성능을 저하시키는 결과를 야기한다. 때문에 스테인레스강에 구리 혹은 아연 등을 코팅하는 과정에서 벗겨짐이 없도록 점착 성능이 개선되어야 한다고 판단된다.

  • This paper presents the parameters optimization technology for generating the first short stroke lightning current waveform($10/350{\mu}s$) which is necessary for the performance tests of components of lightning protection systems, as required under IEC 62305 and the newly amended IEC 62561. The circuit using the crowbar device specified in IEC 62305 was applied to generate the lightning current waveform. To find the proper parameters of the circuit is not easy because the circuit consists of two parts; circuit I, which relates to the front of current waveform, and circuit II, which relates to the tail. A simulation in PSpise was carried out to find main factors related to the front and tail of $10/350{\mu}s$. The lightning current generator was developed by utilizing the circuit parameters found in the simulation. In the result of experiments, new parameters of the circuits need to be changed because of the difference between the simulation and the experiment results. Using the iterative method, the optimized parameters of the circuits was determined. Also a multistage-type external coil and a damping resistor were proposed to make the efficiency of generation to enhance. According to the result in this paper, an optimized first short stroke lightning current waveform was obtained.

  • Recently, IEC published new standards about the requirements and tests for lightning protection system(LPS) components. If components are used for LPS, they should comply with the IEC standards. This paper, we collected six specimens for the metallic connection components using in domestic, and it tested for withstand lightning current which according to the IEC 62561-1. As a result, only one specimen meet this performance requirement. The specimen is the metallic connection component with four bolts fixed. Therefor, when designing of LPS in domestic, the metallic connection components shall be taken into account for the selection of the withstand lightning current. In addition, we need to develop for LPS components product and the national standards.
