Výzkumy na jímačích ESE

Abstract: The paper reviews about research of radioactive lightning rods carried out 30 years ago and about new measurements of early streamer emission terminals. Lightning damage on over 100 buildings equipped with ESE terminals in Malaysia and on one family house in Poland is reported. The main measure criterion was the breakdown voltage of the air gap consisted of the high voltage electrode (rod or plate) and a grounded radioactive or ESE terminal. These careful measurements show that the air gaps with ESE terminals have the same breakdown voltages as the air gaps with standard rods. Therefore the big protection zone of ESE terminals as claimed by their manufactures seem to be impossible.
