The application of surge-protective devices in low-voltage systems faces the dilemma of providing effective limiting against surges while not attempting to limit the temporary overvoltages that do occur in a power system. The paper illustrates this dilemma with specific scenarios and presents recommendations for reconciling these two requirements through adequate design and more explicit standards.
