Hello all!

I’ve got a question to engineers design of Lightning Protection Systems. What software do you use into your work, especially to identify the most suitable location(s) for the air terminal(s)?

Best regards

Hello,

It exist a dedicated software in fully compliance to stnadard IEC /EN 62305-2. The name is "Jupiter".

We are using this software to define very precisely the Lightning  risk assessment for each building . Then we are able to know wich kind of LPS we need and also how many Lightning arrester and surge arresters we have to install into the electrical panaelboard.

A demo could be downloaded on internet

Best Regards

3D Lightning

 

The free software for 3D design of direct stroke lightning protection.

 

 [Image Can Not Be Found]

This program uses the RSM and class of LPS in order to compute and

visualize protected area. This helps to identify the efficiency of

air-termination components. For the present, the program applies to rods

(single, double and multiple rods). The earth’s surface considered as ground

plane on zero level. The striking distances to the ground, and to the rod are

the same.

Nevertheless, it allows for complete design cycle:

- to create a model of rod

- to create any feasible LPS, positioning the air-termination components

- to change location and parameters of components

- to visualize three-dimensional protected area

- to cut part of protected area above a given level. (Equipment is taken as

protected, if it is nowhere protrudes from this area)

- to change a class of LPS

- to generate a horizontal section in a given level

- to obtain all the parameter values from protected area

One of the great advantages of the software is the interactive design process

(all design, arrangement, calculation, and visualization processes proceed in

parallel (e. g. after placing the additional rod, you can see its adequate

protected area immediately). You will be able to complete sophisticated design

projects following minimal training.

This application enfolds Autodesk® AutoCAD® working environment with

supplementary set of advanced design tools.
