In the present paper, transient-induced voltages on a distribution line over finitely conducting ground, which are associated with lightning to a 200-m high stack, have been analyzed by Numerical Electromagnetics Code (NEC-2). An electromagnetic model (EM) of a lightning channel, which contains additional distributed inductance to simulate the reduced propagation velocity of lightning current, has been employed. Validity of the employed model which incorporates a tall structure and a lightning channel has been discussed by comparing calculation with measurements.
