Abstract

Lightning striking characteristics to wind turbine blades have been investigated by the model experiments with actual turbine blades. The effects of various types of receptors, polarities of applied voltages, pollution on the blade surface have been clarified. Based on these experimental results, lightning protection design of actual wind turbine blades by receptors has been discussed.
