Promoting the widespread use of non-gasoline vehicles such as electric vehicles (EVs) is a major global issue that is attracting a lot of attention.
The widespread use of recharging stations (quick chargers) is an essential key to promoting the widespread use of electric vehicles (EVs). Lightning protection is also necessary for these charging stations. This is because charging stations are located outdoors and are therefore susceptible to lightning.
Electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers conduct adequate surge tests, but because lightning is a natural form of energy, there is a possibility that unexpected lightning currents may enter charging stations (there are no reports of lightning surges leading to serious EV accidents at this time).
