This paper presents a comparative lightning performance study conducted on a 275 kV double circuit shielded transmission line using two software programs, TFlash and Sigma-Slp. The line performance was investigated by using both a single stroke and a statistical performance analysis and considering cases of shielding failure and backflashover. A sensitivity analysis was carried out to determine the relationship between the flashover rate and the parameters influencing it. To improve the lightning performance of the line, metal oxide surge arresters were introduced using different phase and line locations. Optimised arrester arrangements are proposed.
