Unprotected electrical system inside a turbine can be damaged as a result of direct lightning strikes on the turbine. To protect against damage and loss of production as a result of a lightning strike, ABB protection products are used throughout the turbine.
ABB’s surge protection devices (SPD) protect systems throughout the turbine from direct lightning strikes, both Type 1 and Type 2. ABB’s SPD’s also protect from switching impulse current.
− From 24 V to 690 V electrical systems
− Provides equipment protection
− Reduces downtime resulting from equipment reset
− Helps prevent damage due to over voltage and impulse currents
