Lightning Current Transfer Characteristics of the P-Static Discharger Installations 700923
This paper presents the results of p-static discharger installation lightning tests conducted by the Douglas Aircraft Co. at its Long Beach, California, facilities and the facilities of the Lightning and Transients Research Institute at Miami Beach, Florida. The paper discusses the lightning current transfer characteristics and lightning protection design considerations for the p-static discharger, the discharger retainer, and the aircraft installation. Laboratory lightning test results are also discussed in relationship with the in-service experience associated with natural lightning stroke incidents.
