  • Transient Suppression Devices & Principles (.pdf)
    There are two major categories of transient suppressors: a) those that attenuate transients, thus preventing their propagation into the sensitive circuit; and b) those that divert transients away from sensitive loads and so limit the residual voltages. Attenuating a transient, that is, keeping
  • Transient Surges and Surge Suppressor Technologies: Comparing Apples to Oranges and Other Notes
    . The surge suppression industry has adopted IEEE Power Engineering Society's IEEE C62.41-2002 document, titled IEEE RECOMMENDED PRACTICE ON SURGE VOLTAGES IN LOW-VOLTAGE AC POWER CIRCUITS, as the standard for categorizing transients and the associated waveforms used to test suppressor efficacy
  • AC Line Voltage Transients and Their Suppression (.pdf)
    to stray electrical transients which may be present in the distribution system. The initial use of semiconductor devices resulted in a number of unexplained failures. Investigation into these failures revealed that they were caused by transients, which were present in many different forms in the system
  • Littelfuse Varistors - Basic Properties, Terminology and Theory (.pdf)
    Varistors are voltage dependent, nonlinear devices which have an electrical behavior similar to back-to-back zener diodes. The symmetrical, sharp breakdown characteristics shown in Figure 1 enable the varistor to provide excellent transient suppression performance. When exposed to high voltage
  • Lightning Transients
    into the common earth paths of the earthing system of the installation. The ideal transient suppression device would be an open circuit at normal voltages, would conduct without delay at some slight voltage above normal, would not allow the voltage to increase during the clamping period, would handle
  • Silicon SPDs: Commodity Diode Connections vs. Custom Design
    ) lower clamping voltages versus other technologies and 3) non-degrading performance in their lowlevel transient suppression function. However, not all silicon avalanche diode based SPDs are the same. SPD design and manufacturing standards can dramatically affect suppressor performance. Areas
  • Keeping coax safe
    voltages imposed on the wire. Though transient suppression is relatively straightforward in ordinary wires, there are complications that arise when protecting coaxial cables. Protectors must limit the transient voltages on both the outer shield and center conductor. And this protection must not affect
  • TVS Design Guide
    Lightning strikes aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and ships with a higher frequency than most people would believe. Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) devices can guard against the destructive energy spikes generated by lightning or an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). This TVS Design Guide will explain
  • Surge and Filter Protection Devices and Applications
    cases, these costs far outweigh the cost of just replacing the damaged components. The costs associated with the prevention of even a single failure with the proper use of transient and noise suppression devices will be minimal compared to the actual costs of failure due to down time.
