## Software tools for the lightning performance assessment

This chapter describes two of the most adopted software tools for the evaluation of the lightning performance of transmission and distribution lines, namely FLASH and LIOV-EMTP (Lightning Induced OverVoltage - ElectroMagnetic Transient Program), together with some application examples. The FLASH program has been developed by IEEE Working Groups. LIOV-EMTP is the result of the integration between the EMTP and the LIOV code, developed by Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna (Italy), Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne - EPFL (Switzerland), with the support of University of Rome La Sapienza' and of Centro Elettrotecnico Sperimentale Italiano G. Motta' CESI S.p.A. (Italy).
