EvoDis® is developed by the Turkish company MTO ✅ using effective lightning and lightning suppression techniques ✅ includes 8 different technical models to suit different requirements

Lightning Prevention Principle?

The point where the lightning strikes depends on which of the positively charged streamers ascending from the ground objects catches the oppositely charged streamers descending from the cloud. Lightning Prevention Principle aims to avoid an upward streamer development and let lightning strike to any other place.

Instead of accumulating the charges on a single point and emitting them to the cloud in the form of streamers, thousands of tiny sharp points dissipate the charges and keep the surrounding electric field strength below the threshold level. This process prevents the development of streamers towards the cloud and blocks the formation of a channel in which the lightning current goes through..

Since that charge dissipation process occurs independently of the polarity of the charges in the environment, this solution works for both negative and positive types of lightning strike perfectly..

EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System

EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System is the first and only product that operates with the principle of preventing direct lightning strikes to metal structures. Unlike the typical lightning arrester solutions such as E.S.E.s, Franklin rods, Faraday cages, etc., EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System makes the protected structure invisible to lightning and create a lightning-free zone.

Research & Development and Test Stages

EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System is developed through R&D studies of MTO. The research phase of the product is supported by various science and technology institutions..

EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System was put on a series of tests at the Istanbul Technical University High Voltage Laboratory and completed the process with 100% success. Following the laboratory test process, EvoDis® installed on towers of all GSM operators for pilot applications and these outdoor field tests were monitored and tracked by devices called lightning detectors. EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System, once again, had 100% success on the sites which were prone to lightning before EvoDis® applications.

EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System High Voltage Laboratory Tests Istanbul Technical University

Tổng quan 8 mô hình phòng chống sét, đuổi sét, tán sét EvoDis®

In consequence of the request of MTO Engineering Ltd. Co. to determine the performance of the “multipoint discharge lightning protection system” (EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System), the system subjected to a series of tests held at Istanbul Technical University High Voltage Laboratories on May 26, 2008.

The tests conducted are 1) determination of the discharge inception voltages for the 300/2500-ms switching impulse voltages, 2) switching impulse voltage capture ratios under the same electro-geometrical conditions, and 3) Corona emission currents in switching impulse voltages.

A standard size copper Franklin Rod taken as reference in accordance with the international test standards, and all tests and measurements also applied on Franklin Rod under the same conditions.

The purpose of the tests is to observe the performance of EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System as a multipoint discharge lightning protection device and to find out its degree of success in the laboratory environment before the field test process. This report is a summary and explanation of the original report issued by Istanbul Technical University.

Experiments

1) Experiment for determination of the discharge inception voltages for the 300/2500-ms switching impulse voltages:

Both samples (Franklin Rod and EvoDis®-55) are exposed to high voltage at 2-meter, 3- meter, and 4-meter spaces respectively, and the relevant impulse capture voltages are measured:

Overview of 8 models of lightning protection and lightning protection EvoDis®

According to this result

1. The lightning strikes EvoDis®-55 only when it is forced at higher voltages compared to the Franklin Rod. The Franklin Rod used in the experiments symbolizes any object under the natural conditions. In such a case, the risk of being hit by strike during a storm is much lower for a structure protected by EvoDis®-55 than an unprotected structure.

2. The voltage level which affects EvoDis® Unit increases with the gap between electrodes. In laboratory conditions, the widest space between the metal electrode and test units is 4 meters. In nature, a typical storm cloud base is about 1,5-2 km above the ground. With reference to the results of this experiment, EvoDis® Unit can be hit by a lightning strike only with a minimum potential of 700 million Volts which is not possible with today’s scientific knowledge on the lightning phenomenon. An average lightning strike is considered to be between 10 and 120 million volts.

2) Corona emission currents in switching impulse voltages

Both samples (Franklin Rod and EvoDis®-55) are exposed to both negative and positive switching impulse voltages of 300/2500 µsn at 2-meter, 3-meter, and 4-meter spaces respectively, and the Corona emission currents measured. The measurements with voltages ranging from 300 kV to 1000 kV showed that EvoDis®-55 gives higher values than Franklin Rod at each experiment. It is also observed the Corona emission current increases for both samples as the voltage increases.

The corona emission current represents the charge emission under normal conditions. Accordingly;

1. Under the natural conditions, EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System emits more charges compared to the objects or structures represented by the Franklin Rod.

2. EvoDis®-55 reveals more corona emission which indicates that the protected structures neutralized faster, and they have a lower risk of lightning

3) Switching impulse voltage capture ratios under the same electro-geometrical conditions

Both samples (Franklin Rod and EvoDis®-55) are arrayed side by side in different geometries, exposed to high voltage at 2-meter, 3-meter, and 4-meter spaces respectively, and which of two samples capture more impulses is observed.

According to this result;

1. Regardless the electrode spacing, i.e. the outlet points of the lightning strike, no lightning strike has hit EvoDis®-55 while there was a Franklin Rod in the environment.

2. The Franklin Rod represents any object or structure under the storm cloud which can be a building, mast, tower, or a tree. Lightning occurrence cannot be prevented but can be prevented to hit a protected structure. This experiment shows that the structure which is protected by EvoDis® Lightning Prevention System cannot be a target of lightning strikes.

Conclusion

All the tests and experiments indicate that the EvoDis® sample have a much lower risk of a direct lightning hit compared to the Franklin Rod and the objects it represents.

In other words, EvoDis® makes the protected places invisible to lightning.

Goal:

The goal is to have lightning strike risk minimized for the towers protected by EvoDis Lightning Prevention System.

Method:

EvoDis Lightning Prevention System is a lightning protection system that mitigates the direct lightning strike risk on metal structures. The method to show that the device works, and it protects the towers against the effects of lightning is to track the lightning occurrence close to test towers and prove that the lightning does not hit the tower. It is possible to detect the occurrence of lightning close to the tower with the lightning detector. Although the test site is the highest structure and the most obvious target for a lightning strike in the environment, if the tower does not receive any lightning hits even though lightning is observed close to the test site, it proves EvoDis Lightning Prevention System functions successfully.

EvoDis Lightning Prevention System test is conducted in Bodrum - Muğla which lasts for 11 months, and 48 positive and negative lightning discharges are detected 0 to 50 meters close to the tower protected by EvoDis. These strikes are expected to hit the tower since it is the tallest and the most conductive object around, however after EvoDis Lightning Prevention System is applied on the tower, none of the 48 lightning strikes hit the test tower.
