    Mirjan:

    Have you tried looking on the WWW for information? User your favorite search engine.

    In most cases the lightening will hit the towers and not the wires. This energy is usually directed to the ground since the towers are grounded.

    The strike could destroy the equipment. On the substation, we usually installed a lightening arrestor on the poles to protect the installed equipment

    The strike could destroy the equipment . Usually we installed lightening arrester on the top of poles to protect the installed equipment. However, the manufacture now are designing their equipment to withstand 5 times rated impulse/strike
