A surge protection device (SPD) is a device built to defend against dangerous and unsafe short, high voltage transients generated by the equipment outside or with the building. Its initial purpose is to protect the device through monitoring the supply received if the changes are found in the supply actions. The supply will either be stopped or the voltage can be clamped till the spike has completely taken away.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a surge protector?
A surge protection device (SPD) is configured for electrical installation protection system used in the power grid and communication systems.
It is one of the most powerful and commonly utilised forms of an overvoltage defence system. This can help to reduce the spontaneous voltage of transient energy spikes and electrical noise on the power supply line due to internal load, lighting and other transient disruption. It can also prevent or reduces all additional voltages above the secure level.
However, there are some crucial advantages and disadvantages of surge protector device which are in the following:
