Protection against lightning problems arise in wind farms usually not seen in other equipment - Wind turbines are often installed in locations that are highly exposed to lightning.- Equipment for wind turbines that have the highest rates of lightning strike) such as blades and nozzle chamber (often made of composite materials that are able to withstand direct lightning or lightning current guidance. - Lightning current into the ground should be guided by the wind turbine structures which, in practice, a significant portion of lightning current passes through or near the equipment wind turbine. - Wind turbines in wind farms are connected electrically and are often installed in places with high ground resistance. In order to protect the turbine should consider special measures
