In a triggered-lightning experiment carried out on a mountain in Japan, thirteen strikes were obtained for the winter seasons of 1986 and 1987. The lightning occurred on the conductor and the tower of a 275 kV test transmission line, on the ground, etc. The authors outline the triggering method and the experimental results obtained from electrical and optical observations. Comparatively intense lightning with a current greater than 50 kA or a charge greater than 200 C was obtained
