    • Caracterización de la electrificación de tormentas para su aplicación en procesos de sistemas de alerta: el caso de aerogeneradores y otras infraestructuras elevadas 

      Salvador Yuste, Albert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-11-12)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      In an increasingly technological society,vulnerability to the effects of lightning is also increasing. The implementation of monitoring and surveillance systems in real time of lightning activity can greatly improve the ...
    • Charge structure of two tropical thunderstorms in Colombia 

      López Trujillo, Jesús Alberto; Montañá Puig, Juan; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Salvador Yuste, Albert; Romero Durán, David; Aranguren Fino, Harby Daniel; Taborda, John (2019-04-23)
      Open Access
      Charge structure derived from lightning leader development of tropical thunderstorms comprising equatorial latitudes of < ±10° has not been investigated yet. In this work, using a Lightning Mapping Array (LMA) installed ...
    • Lightning mapping observations of downward lightning flashes to wind turbines 

      Montañá Puig, Juan; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; Domingo Dalmau, Anna; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Argemí Ribera, Oriol; Salvador Yuste, Albert (Zakon Group, 2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Negative downward leaders that produced lightning strokes to wind turbines are identified by means of the Lightning Mapping Array data of the Ebro Valley Laboratory (NE Spain). Four cases are analyzed together with weather ...
    • Seasonal variations on the conditions required for the lightning production 

      Salvador Yuste, Albert; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Montañá Puig, Juan; Solà de las Fuentes, Glòria (2020-10-01)
      Open Access
      Given the growing concern on lightning threats outside the main warm-season, the objective of this study is to get further insight on the seasonal variations of the necessary conditions required for the production of ...
    • Thunderstorm characteristics favouring downward and upward lightning to wind turbines 

      Pineda, Nicolau; Montañá Puig, Juan; Salvador Yuste, Albert; Van der Velde, Oscar Arnoud; López Trujillo, Jesús Alberto (2018-12-01)
      Open Access
      Meteorological conditions and thunderstorm characteristics related to lightning threats to wind turbines are discussed in this paper. Due to the rotating blades, wind turbines may be regarded peculiar tall objects, more ...
    • Thunderstorm charge structures favouring cloud-to-ground lightning 

      Salvador Yuste, Albert; Pineda Rüegg, Nicolau; Montañá Puig, Juan; Solà de las Fuentes, Glòria (2021-08)
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Thunderstorm electrical structures favouring cloud-to-ground lightning were investigated through a Lightning Mapping Array (LMA), an accurate three-dimensional lightning location system that allows inferring the heights ...
