Streamer product manager spoke at conference in Brazil

18.10.2019
Mikheil Zhitenev made a presentation at the SIPDA conference in Sao Paulo. This is an international symposium on lightning protection, which takes place twice a year.

The event is organized by the Institute of Energy and Environment of the University of Sao Paulo. It covers all aspects related to lightning, including physics and characteristics of lightning, measurements, simulation methods, detection and positioning systems, grounding, protection methods and accidents and damage associated with this phenomenon.
In total, about 180 people from Italy, Switzerland, Algeria, Japan, Sweden, Malaysia, China, South Africa, USA, Canada, Russia, Colombia and Brazil took part in SIPDA.  Among them there were academics and students, representatives of networks and manufacturers of protective equipment.
There were world-famous lightning researches: prof. Alexandre Piantini (Brazil), prof. William A. Chisholm (Canada), prof. Vernon Cooray (Sweden), prof. Masaru Ishii (Japan), prof. Carlo A. Nucci (Italy), prof. Farhad Rachidi (Switzerland),prof. Vladimir Rakov (USA).
Mikheil Zhitenev presented a report by Streamer's researcher Dmitry Belko on the development of a unique software that is designed to help energy companies detect the most vulnerable areas of lines, find the best protection means and arrange them on the line.
Thus users can find an effective method of protection for an affordable budget. 


"The problem is in the point that current methods and software solutions are very demanding to the user in terms of understanding the problem, knowledge of equipment and of course licenses for several expensive programs at once.  At the same time, the majority of users need not high accuracy of calculation but specific solutions for existing problems without long study of the problem and methods.  Thus, software developed by Dmitry provides the user with an opportunity to switch from a scientific calculator to a regular one, and everyone can use a regular calculator. The community of academics has accepted simplifications not too keen, but network engineers who face similar problems every day eagerly accepted the proposed solution”, - comments the product manager. 


As a part of the SIPDA conference closing ceremony the organizers gave Mikhail Zhitenev a floor to receive the baton and invite participants to the Russian Conference on Lightning Protection, which will be held in April 2020 in St. Petersburg. Many speakers are currently preparing reports for it.

The first of the lightning protection devices, developed to be supplied to SGCC sites, was sent to carry out operational testing in Guangxi province.

The lightning protection device has successfully passed certification tests at CEPRI (Wuhan) owned by SGCC. 

During the development, new design and process solutions were found and applied, resulting in improvements of technical characteristics and reducing the cost of a multi-chamber system – the main functional element of a lightning protection device whose design is protected by patents of the Russian Federation and PRC.

Vietnam Ha Giang Power Company will test Streamer innovative devices of lightning protection.


Vietnam Ha Giang Power Company will test Streamer innovative devices of lightning protection.

Ha Giang is a mountainous province with a complex topography and experiences extremely high lightning density during the thunderstorm season. 110 kV lines in the province mostly pass through mountainous terrain, many rivers, and streams, so breaks of the line wires due to lightning, are not uncommon. Most of the problem areas are concentrated in areas such as the Nam Ngan hydroelectric power plant and the city of Viet Kuang. Installation of innovative lightning protection devices to provide the region with uninterrupted power supply was necessary.
