- Wind energy is renewable and clean energy which has the most mature technology and the development conditions. Wind power generation provides the basis for the harmonious development between man and nature. The wind turbine is working under the natural environment, as a result, it is inevitable to be influenced by natural disasters. With the increase of wind power generation capacity and wind farm scale, the harm of lightning to the safe operation of the wind motor is becoming more and more serious. Wind turbine blade is one of the most vulnerable parts of the damage of lightning. Domestic researches about this are rare. Based on a large number of foreign research materials, the author analyzes the mechanism of lightning damage to wind turbine blades and classify several effective lightning protection measures of blade. It is helpful for the domestic wind power plant to carry out the effective protection of the wind turbine blade.
