Time-Domain Analysis of Building Shielding Against Lightning Electromagnetic Fields
The shielding performance of different buildings in presence of indirect lightning return strokes are investigated directly in the time domain. To this end, a sensitivity analysis is conducted by varying the channel geometrical characteristics and considering three different buildings. The performance is evaluated by adopting the time-domain shielding parameters recently proposed, which appear to be suitable for shielding studies in presence of lightning electromagnetic pulses. The results confirm the usefulness of introducing different parameters to fully characterize the shielding behavior of buildings exposed to lightning electromagnetic fields.
