An update on experimental data obtained at the Säntis Tower
2015 Edition, June 1, 2015 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The Säntis Tower was instrumented in May 2010 and, to this date, more than 400 flashes were successfully recorded. Lightning current waveforms and their time-derivatives are measured at two different heights along the tower (24-m and 82-m AGL). In this paper, we...

Preliminary comparison of data from the Säntis Tower and the EUCLID lightning location system
2011 Edition, October 1, 2011 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper, direct lightning current measurements obtained on the Säntis Tower from June 1st, 2010 to May 31st, 2011 are used to evaluate the ability of the EUCLID lightning detection network to detect this type of lightning triggered by a tall...

A Study of a Large Bipolar Lightning Event Observed at the Säntis Tower
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

An unusual negative lightning flash was recorded at the Säntis Tower on June 15, 2012. The flash did not contain an initial continuous current typical of upward negative lightning, which is the most common type of event at...

Current waveforms associated with positive flashes recorded on the säntis tower in summer 2010
2011 Edition, October 1, 2011 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present in this paper measured current waveforms associated with positive flashes recorded on the Säntis tower, Switzerland, in Summer 2010. About 20% of the recorded flashes were of positive polarity (transported positive charge to ground), all of them being...

An update on the charaterictics of positive flashes recorded on the Säntis Tower
2014 Edition, October 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present an update on the characteristics of positive flashes recorded on the Säntis Tower in Switzerland from May 2010 to January 2013, during which period 38 positive flashes were recorded. Out of the 38 recorded flashes, 1 was identified...

Some characteristics of positive and bipolar lightning flashes recorded on the Säntis tower in 2010 and 2011
2012 Edition, September 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present an analysis of measured current waveforms associated with positive and bipolar flashes recorded on the Säntis tower, Switzerland, from May 2010 till January 2012. The overall number of recorded flashes in the considered period was 201, of...

A statistical analysis on the risetime of lightning current pulses in negative upward flashes measured at Säntis tower
2012 Edition, September 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present statistical data on the risetime of lightning current pulses in negative upward flashes measured on the Säntis tower in 2010 and 2011. Two different definitions were used to determine the current risetime. The first is...

Bursts of fast pulses in positive lightning current waveforms recorded on the säntis tower
2013 Edition, October 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present in this paper an analysis of bursts of fast pulses in current waveforms associated with positive lightning flashes of type 1 recorded on the Säntis Tower in Switzerland. Type-1 flashes are characterized by the presence of a large unipolar current pulse...

Analysis of lightning events preceding upward flashes from Gaisberg and Säntis Towers
2014 Edition, October 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper, we present an analysis of the initiation of upward lightning flashes for the Gaisberg and the Säntis Towers. The results are compared with previous studies. It is found that the majority of upward lightning discharges from both...

Lightning currents measured on the Säntis Tower: A summary of the results obtained in 2010 and 2011
2013 Edition, August 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The deployed instrumentation at the Säntis Tower in Switzerland to measure lightning currents and lightning current derivatives is presented. During the first 18 months of operation, the measurement system successfully recorded more than 200 flashes to...
