A triggered-lightning experiment and EMTP modeling of that experiment are used to study the responses of a two-conductor overhead power line to a direct lightning strike. The experiment was conducted at the International Center for Lightning Research and Testing (ICLRT) at Camp Blanding, FL. The lightning was artificially initiated (triggered) from a natural thundercloud using the rocket-and-wire technique, and its current was directed to the phase conductor. EMTP modeling of the line behavior yields results that are generally consistent with the measurements
