Beyond The Rolling Sphere - In Memoriam Prof. Tibor Horváth
The Pioneer in the Probabilistic Approach of Lightning Interception

Session Abstract

Professor Tibor Horváth was a well-known scientist in high voltage
engineering and lightning protection. Perhaps most experts of the
scientific communitee know him from the rolling sphere method which
was standardised in the early sixties in the XX. century. Beyond that
method which is a tool for the construction of air termination system,
he worked out a theory, the probability modulated attractive space
theory, that was succesfully applied in the estimation of the
efficiency of lightning protection.  Today different methodes are used
for the sam purpose using probabilistic approach, but Prof. Horváth
was a pioneer of this field.
