Transient Solutions

The resolution to transients and transient-related problems is the installation of surge protection equipment. While some utilities install surge suppression equipment on their distribution lines it is still necessary for the customer to install equipment in their home or business. The only way to stop transients is to build a "Protective Fence" around each piece of sensitive electronic equipment or appliance.

Solutions to problems introduced by transients fall into two categories -- wiring solutions and equipment solutions. Wiring solutions include using special circuit and grounding practices. Properly designed transmission towers and other distribution system components can minimize lightning-generated transients.
