- Early Streamer Emission, ESE, Lightning Arrester
- A new early streamer emission (ESE) lightning air terminal system is designed, fabricated. By comparing the arrested artificial lightning numbers of ESE and traditional Franklin terminals in laboratory, the effectiveness of ESE arrester is validated. A Tesla Coil with controlled triggering function generator is used to produce simulated lightning strikes. Both terminals are placed with same distance to the TC during the testing processes and exchanging their positions does not influence the observed results. The tested data validate the effectiveness of the ESE terminal under the laboratory environment.
