Surge Arrester

Surge Arrester - Safeguarding Equipment and Ensuring Power System Reliability

  A surge arrester, also known as a high voltage surge arrester or lightning arrester, is an electrical device that safeguards equipment from high voltage surges and transients. Surge arresters are typically installed in power grids and other electrical systems, with various types available, such as polymer and porcelain surge arresters. Surge arrester fittings and accessories like disconnector, discharge counter, and on-line monitor are also available to enhance protection. Surge arresters function by employing a non-linear resistor and spark gap to conduct high voltage surges, diverting the surge energy into the ground and reducing the potential for equipment damage. Surge arresters play a critical role in ensuring the safety and reliability of power systems across residential, commercial, and light industrial applications.
