OBJECTIVES
i. To study the generation of switching transients and their control using circuit – theoretical concept.

ii. To study the mechanism of lighting strokes and the production of lighting surges.

iii. To study the propagation, reflection and refraction of travelling waves.

iv. To study the impact of voltage transients caused by faults,
circuit breaker action, load rejection on integrated power system.
