Lightning: interesting facts and curiosities about electrical storms

Lightning: interesting facts and curiosities about electrical storms    
Lightning is one of the most fascinating and spectacular natural phenomena. The powerful electrostatic discharge that it represents lights up the sky during electrical storms. Nevertheless, we must not forget that lightning strikes Earth with great force, and without appropriate protection and prevention it is potentially hazardous for people, animals, buildings and electrical and electronic equipment.
General earthing system: earthing installation    
The general earthing system connects the different parts of an electrical installation with the surface conductor of the Earth to guarantee security and functionality. In an electrical installation, the soil itself provides equipotentialization for all of the metallic parts so that there are no differences in potential between each other. This is carried out in order to guarantee the safety of people and equipment from any possible defects in the actual facilities.
Is there any relation between pollution, climate change and a possible increase in thunderstorms?    
Nowadays, around 25 million lightning strikes impact the earth every year. In relation to the frequency of the lightning strikes, some research studies point out that the heat and a rise in temperature are related to cloud electrification. In fact, it is known that during the summer, thunderstorms are more frequent. This reasoning could make us think that if the climate change produces a global rise in temperatures, an increase in lightning events could be produced.
Smart Homes: problems and solutions for overvoltages in the electricity grid    
More and more buildings and houses have electronic devices that allow for a more efficient and comfortable home: thermoregulation, sophisticated security systems, all kind of automations, remote controllers, energy management systems, several interconnected devices…There is no doubt in there being a trend for domotised homes which will increase, given how these technologies mean an important improvement in the quality of life.
