What is qualified to be Called SPD?

We will expand the piece of EMC Science identified with surge protection to "lightning protection" in China and have a place with the "Meteorological Bureau" to oversee it. Despite everything, we utilize the worldwide name: SPD (surge protection devices).

Be that as it may, because of universal and household guidelines, numerous organizations inside the business have made a similar frame of mind as laymen: just worried about the flow, remaining pressure and the most extreme ceaseless working voltage.

The SPD cost is incredibly low by numerous cotton makers since they just focus on the three parameters. Concerning whether the lightning arrester will be harmed under the non-surge interruption state, it won't be considered. As it were, they couldn't care less about the security of the lightning protection gadget by any means.

It is fair to say that in the lightning protection industry, QIYU Technologies give more consideration to the electrical wellbeing and execution of our items. The lightning arrester must priorities the protection of the device, and to a limited degree, before any harm to the secured device to guarantee that the ensured gadget is not affected, and itself indicate a failure caution.

In this procedure, we should comprehend the whole QIYUtech from the part level, to accomplish a fundamental qualified SPD that is up to the needs of clients.

Thermal Stability Experiment

We at QIYU Technologies realize that there is a statement in IEC61643-11 (2011): Thermal Stability Experiment.

Here is the investigation, in GB18802.1-2011 and UL1449 the fourth version have comparable necessities: Surge Protection Device can limit transient overvoltage in a moment without breakdown, and in case of SPD harm disconnect the grid connection inside the predefined time.

The key point is TOV.

The safety analysis of the power supply lightning arrester under pausing and low-voltage test conditions, inquire about on its action prerequisites and its test, and simultaneously by contrasting the test techniques for various standards, bringing up the deficiency of YD principles and ensuing improvement recommendations.

Moreover, the essential lightning protection performance, the power supply lightning arrester has another significant action is its safe execution, which is, for the most part, reflected in two perspectives:

·         It doesn't influence the working of a system;

·         Limit the effect on system activity when failing the protective gadget.

From the development of IEC guidelines and UL models, the test necessities for its security execution are the most concerned part and the most changed and questionable part. It is exactly due to countless lightning protection security mishaps that the proper performance of lightning protection gadgets has turned into the most significant performance of power supply.

The power supply conditions of the power supply lightning arrester for the low-voltage dispersion arrangement in China are additionally progressively serious and muddled, which is primarily reflected in:

·         China's low-voltage power supply framework has substandard grid quality and huge voltage changes compared to the outside nations. Because of the poor dependability of the line and the issues in power management, the entire power grid is inclined to zero-overvoltage and dislodging overvoltage.

·         Some power supply lightning arresters should be utilized in territories with high neighborhood temperature, for example, outside.

·         An enormous number of intensity SPD Surge Protectors applications are incredibly defenseless against lightning strikes.

·         Three-phase grid is out of phase or voltage is precarious.

Consequently, we should give more consideration to the security performance of SPD.

If we investigate Japan's principles for the interchanges business: CES-0040-2 (discharged on June 30, 2014), and its standard subtleties can control learners in SPD plan we can say that the rise of this standard depends on the total EMC hypothesis. Indeed, it isn't hard to comprehend: the lightning protection industry discusses staggered security of allotments, assurance as indicated by the attributes of the ensured gear, and so forth. These are EMC ideas. For instance, radar, notwithstanding the electrical cable is one of the principle interruption courses, and there is a receiving wire.

As per EMC's theory, when a 20-50W space electromagnetic beat legitimately impacts the radar antenna without a pointed contrast, the hardware at the back phase of the reception apparatus must withstand the surge sway itself. Subsequently, the antenna feeder flood arrester appeared.

The lightning protection industry is just a little part of the EMC discipline. If you can't comprehend the lightning protection industry from a total EMC point of view, you can't evaluate the lightning protection industry from the safety necessities, at that point the lightning protection industry won't probably quantify your gear from successful protection.

Simultaneously, not all circuits can be called SPDs. Without security plan, they are not able to be called SPDs. Obviously, their costs will increment likewise. At present, in the market section of LED outdoor lighting, some power organizations have propelled a sort of stuff called "built-in lightning protection device", however, this is only a contrivance, and it is just capable to work as a lightning protection gadget.

QIYU Technologies accepts that without a total comprehension of the EMC business, there is a work in lightning arrester in the constant current switching power supply. This is a lack of respect for our lightning insurance industry. This is a lack of respect for the electromagnetic compatibility discipline.

·         Above all else, the lightning arrester can't be made into a full voltage, and the SPD must be made into a solitary voltage, which is brought about by parts and can't be changed;

·         Furthermore, the lightning arrester must have the vital warm stumbling gadget, however not a present breaker can be made;

·         At last, a total warm plan must be done in the framework, explicitly intended for the TOV test in IEC61643. The equivalent trial provisions show up in the different renditions of UL1449.

The communication business has gotten comfortable with lightning security, and its genuine needs and necessities for lightning insurance have culminated. QIYUtech agrees that items can be acknowledged as long as they can control a specific quality failure rate. However, in our industry, we initially planned to tackle the 0.001% plausibility for our clients. We should trap the potential failure modes: minor deformities, general imperfections, genuine imperfections, lethal imperfections. QIYU Technologies accepts that genuine deformities plus lethal imperfections ought to be controlled to zero, and the aggregate sum of minor imperfections plus general deformities not surpassing 0.3% is adequate.

All in all, how would you figure out what is a genuine or lethal imperfection?

Underneath we take a gander at the disappointment instances of a few LED road lights in the use of the proprietor:

Yibin City Bridge Street light flopped because of a lightning strike

In this accident, the power supply is fueled by Infineon, and the light source board is an aluminum substrate that is fixed to the die-cast aluminum warmth sink by copper-plated nickel screws. At the season of production, the aluminum substrate is joined to the warmth sink through a warmth scattering pad. The external surface of the entire radiator is showered with protecting three anti-paint; however, the three locking bolts of the light holder are made of copper metal parts, and the external surface is plated with splendid nickel, which is an electric channel.

In the four months since the case happened, there have been some huge scale rainstorms in Jiangnan County. Surely, that there are immediate lightning strikes on the bridge deck, and huge numbers of them have seen the immediate lightning strikes on the streetlights in the focal point of the bridge deck, the head part. If a lightning strike hits a more remote position, it is pulled in by the lightning protection net of the close-by building and brought into the ground net by the down conductor. When a lightning strike hits the head of the streetlight, each of the 105 road lights on the bridge deck is quenched.

The PC, charging gear, checking, lighting hardware, cooling, and so forth in the toll station is annihilated, and another zone isolated by a road is after the air-opening trip, the power is killed, and any electrical gear isn't harmed after being switched on manually.

When the lightning strike happened, the distribution box of the community under the bridge stumbled, yet it was noticed that the wire was singed, the wire was scorched, and the region under the power distribution box was fueled off.

The road lights at the two parts of the bridge are marginally harmed because of the adjacent structures and mountain security. At the point when there is an immediate lightning strike at the position of the light, it is pulled in through the conductive bolting jolt and the lightning current is brought into the post body. As of now, on the grounds that the construction party has dependably associated the mains PE line to the post of the light shaft, the lightning current has a drain section, and the lightning current will crush along the PE line.

After the lightning current breaks into the PE line, the PE potential of the whole framework is raised by a huge number of volts, and the lifting time is amazingly short. When the high-potential PE line is exposed to lightning current, it additionally causes a breakdown activity to the N-line and the L-line. The breakdown activity ought to happen in the last circuit or at a point where the dielectric quality is low.

In any case, the lightning current release channel of the PE line itself isn't wide enough, and the rust is serious with the goal that the lightning current is "flood" in the sidelong when the longitudinal release is stuffed: finding the most helpless point, cut and surge out. Thus, the LED globule of the LED light head is separated, and the Infineon power supply needs to get this modest quantity of lightning current vitality from the power supply backstage.

Right now, the vertical drain lightning current surges to different kinds of the electronic terminal gear of the toll station by means of the mains PE line constantly separates, surges out and keeps on finding the venting port, lastly finds the association in the distribution box of the region. The copper PE busbar of the grounding grid, after the lightning surges through the air-opening and wire melds in the distribution box, it hurries into the earth through the PE busbar.

For this situation, we have to think about the issue of the building interface. When it is conceivable to experience the danger of direct lightning strikes, we have to do the accompanying activities:

·         Set a high metal edge board on the extension surface and make a solid equipotential association between the metal section of the announcement and the fundamental support of the scaffold.

·         The establishing of all lights ought to be made "gliding", and just the PE busbar can be associated with the closest power circulation bureau.

LED Street light in Beishan City, Jilin Province is harmed

It was because of the redesign task of the old city, and the construction party wouldn't interface the metal wires of the mains as per the prerequisites of the national standard and the PE potential was shaky, lastly on account of floating. Surge energy cannot be released to the ground, causing the region dispersion to trip under the wonder of N-line fire, which brings some transient suspension impacts to the owners. The development of the grounding wire is essentially wrongdoing. If the PE end is rusted, it is equivalent to no grounding.

As indicated by the national standard for electric power construction, it is important to connect the mains PE line as per the national standard. The grounding technique is different yet should be grounded.

Inconsistent grounding systems have turned into a key point, impacting streetlight applications in the field.

Shanxi Solar light disappointment case

For this situation, the gadget has no voltage contribution because of the surge hitting the DC controller. The coordinating of the DC lightning arrester in this task with the vitality level of the secured gadget itself is no issue, but since the DC Surge Protection Device has a place with the last assurance, it doesn't coordinate the SPD in the zone appropriation bureau. In the long run, the SPD fizzles with the ensured gadget.

Sometimes the vitality level confuses in all respects liable to cause the front-end lightning protection device to not work and the last level lightning protection device to endure all the surge vitality alone. The last case happened in Nanchong City, Sichuan Province. In the communication base station, this time happens on the LED road light. It tends to be seen that the surge is insignificant to the business of the proprietor, and it is totally unambiguous to enter.


In rundown, we accept that there is an extremely ludicrous marvel in the LED lighting industry: QIYUtech as a whole realize that the surges are significant, yet everybody is looking down on our lightning protection industry. QIYU Technologies believes that the lightning security industry is basic. We simply set up together a couple of parts and are capable to shape an item.

QIYU Technologies is the lightning insurance industry, we have our pride and standards. Our standard is: lightning protection is to fathom the danger of 0.001% for clients. At the point when that 0.001% happens, the guarantee that our industry brings to any client is: our items will never tumble off the chain at a basic minute!
