Full-wave black-box transmission tower modeling in ATP-software for electromagnetic transient analysis of power systems

Anderson Ricardo Justo De Ara├║jo
BEPE (FAPESP grant 2021/11106-0)-with Prof. Dr. Behzad Kordi from University of Manitoba (UofM), Winnipeg, Canada. The objective of the research internship is to model transmission towers (conventional and tall structures) and to predict the occurrence of backflashovers (BFs) when lightning strikes hit overhead power lines. This model consists of a tower structure, including the tower-footing grounding system buried into a realistic model of soil. Then, the tower structure model is represented by an electric circuit...
