Welcome to Wang・Wu Lab

About this Lab

More than half of accidents in electric power systems are caused by lightning. And in recent years there are also many lightning-related accidents in facilities for wind power generation. For the purpose of lightning protection of various electric power systems, we are trying to develop technologies for the observation, prediction and control of lightning discharges. We are also developing technologies for lightning protection of smart grid – the next generation electric power system and doing researches about solar power system.
