Overvoltage transients are considered as major disturbance in high-voltage transmission line systems. It will affect the transmission lines system such as power supply disruptions, damage to equipment and will indirectly endanger human life. Surge arrester is equipment that can be used to overcome this problem where it works by diverting the surge current to ground and protect the transmission line. This study is intended to generate simulated data to study the characteristics of the Schmidt surge arrester. The method used for this study is to develop a Schmidt surge arrester and transmission line system using Alternative Transient Program (ATP) version Electromagnetic Transients Program (EMTP) software. Transmission tower model used in this simulation is double circuit multi-story 132kV while the lightning model used is 10kA current amplitude with current wave 8/20μs. Analysis carried out with lightning stroke hit on the transmission lines while surge arrester installed at transmission tower with a variety of configurations to determine optimum protection performance. The results of this study can be improved in the future by carried out with practical study methods and make comparisons.
