The Surge Arresters, its different types and their applications

by Yamuna Densons Yamuna Cable Accessories Pvt Ltd
The Surge Arresters are particular types of devices that are used for safeguarding electrical power systems from the effect of lightning. These apparatus are preoccupied with two types of terminal. Of these, one is a ground terminal and the other is a high-voltage terminal. While powerful electric surges cross over from the power systems to the surge arrester, high volume of strong electric current has directly been sent to the ground or to the point of insulation. Thus, the electrical system is escaped from being suffered from damages.

The Lightning and Electrical Surges

The powerful surge of lightning has enough potential to damage an electrical system. Such surging may either destroy a particular system or it may cause damaging effect over the whole system. Any other electrical devices that are connected to the system will also be damaged as an immediate effect. This is due to the cause that these devices are made to receive much higher level of voltages than the level attributed to these. Use of an appropriate Lightning Surge Arrester can only rescue them from such happening.

Application of Metal Oxide Varistor or MOV

The risks that are associated with implementation of Surge Arresters is the level of voltage that is absorbed. These devices divert the surges to the ground or clamp them. These helps in minimizing the effects of voltages pass through it. The secret to success behind the operation of surge arresters is the presence of MOV. This is a semiconductor that has acute sensitivity to voltage. Under normal situation, these act as insulator while in high voltages, the same device acts as a conductor. Thus, it helps in passing the current generated to become earth and clamped there.

The Company

The YCAPL is the largest High Voltage Surge Arresters Manufacturer & Suppliers in India. The company has been the frontrunner in making the designs, production, and supplying of various electrical devices up to 66 KV under the brand named YDENSONS.  The company has been able to earn the confidence of customers for the innovative quality of the product. The export quality of these products has been able to meet the high-end requirements in designing, retaining power and appropriate functionality.

The surge arresting products designed by the company has been approved the EEPC, Govt. of India for the pioneering eminence and excellence expected out of an export quality product.

Application of the product

Surge arresters are used in the electrical power systems and its main function is protecting the insulation capacity of the transformers and conductors of the system. These devices are equipped with a high-voltage terminal and a ground terminal. While lightning occurs, the surges travel across the power line of the arrester causing diversion of the current to earth.

Surge Arresters are installed near the electric meter. Such installation helps in the protection of the system from the effect of lightning. These arresters may provide protection to other electrical equipments installed around, but not against the surging that have occurred due to faulty wiring.
