LLPD dC20z is aimed to provide cost-effective and innovative lightning protection of overhead power lines. It means that with these devices installed your power network will be secure from direct lightning strikes, back flashovers and induced overvoltages and damage caused by their deleterious consequences.

LLPD dC20z

This device is a representative of the range of products by Streamer, which has been specifically developed for the protection of overhead distribution lines from direct lightning strikes, back flashovers as well as induced overvoltages. It helps to keep power distribution lines safe from insulator/conductor breakages, switchgear trips, and outages.

Main features:

  • easy-to-install;
  • without additional ground lead requirement;
  • any type of pole (wooden, steel, concrete) and insulation;
  • designed for lines with the highest voltage of equipment of 24 kV;
  • bare or covered conductors;
  • life expectancy of 20 years in the harsh environment.

dC20z is a perfect solution that will help to eliminate the lightning damages cost.

Operation principle

This line lightning protection device operates on the basis of energy impulse dissipation. The lightning overvoltage causes a power arc appearing on a power distribution line in case of either direct or indirect stroke impact.

Streamer-manufactured equipment utilizes the innovative EasyQuench technology, which provides assurance that follow current, having the same frequency as the grid, is interrupted at first current zero crossing. It also guarantees a very fast recovery of the electrical properties of the device, making it impossible for the power arc to develop further.
