Abstract: A test airport runway lighting system, including a buried cable protected by a counterpoise and vertical ground rods, was subjected to direct lightning strikes, and currents and voltages measured in different parts of the system were reported earlier by Bejleri et al. In this paper, we attempt to model the lightning interaction with this system using the transmission line theory. Lumped devices along the cable such as current regulator and transformers are ignored; possible nonlinear phenomena (arcing) in the…
