dc.description.abstract Performance of power transmission lines has a great impact on reliabi lity aspects of a particular power supply system of a country. Unreliable power transmission lines can even lead to total power failures resulting with great financial losses. The lightning back flashover effects are recognized as one of the major causes of transmission line outages.Several types of solutions are presently available to address the issue of lightning back flashovers. However the modem concept of transmission line mounted surge arresters is of great popularity due to its excellent performance, ease of installation and the low cost compared to the other traditional solutions. This report describes a case study which was carried out on one of critical 220kY power transmission I ines of the Sri Lankan transmission network, having several past records of lightning back flashover related outages resulting with total system failures. The study described in this report is mainly focuses on the way of analyzing the back flashover events by transient modeling and subsequent simulation of the selected transmission line in an electromagnetic transient computer program. The study uses the Power System CAD (PSCAD) software program as the software tool for the purpose of modeling and simulation of selected 220kV Biyagama-Kotmale powertransmission line. Simulation of the created transmission line model is carried out with and without Transmission Line Arrester (TLA) model to evaluate the improvements in lightning back flashover performance after installation of TLAs in the selected transmission line. The result of the simulations shows that the installation of 02nos.of TLAs at top phases of each selected towers improves the lightning performance of the selectedpower transmission line.
