Surge protection for PV power plants installations

PV power plants present a high risk of direct lightning impact and surges due to the large exposed area and the long lengths of the electric conductors.In order to avoid problems leading to costly damage and downtime, it is compulsory to install surge protectors at key points in the PV system.
