This paper analyzes the effects of the voltage across insulator of 69 kV and 24 kV lines installed on the same pole. The case studies illustrated the lightning strike to direct top pole and mid span of ground wire using the Alternative Transient Program-Electromagnetic Transient Program (ATP-EMTP). The results found that when lightning strike the voltage across the 69 kV line insulator at mid span is 1.55 times and 1.34 times higher than at top pole when the front time is 0.25/100 μs and 10/350 μs, respectively. When lightning strike the voltage across the 24 kV line at mid span is 1.04 times and 0.64 times higher than at top pole when the front time is 0.25/100 μs and 10/350 μs, respectively. So the effect of lightning strike is more severe at mid span than at the direct top pole, especially for the 69 kV insulator.
