In this paper, a complete model of a power drive system including the earth electrodes is proposed to evaluate electromagnetic conducted interference due to lightning pulses. Circuitmodel of a power drive system is joined with a full-wave approach for the simulation of the time behavior of the grounding system.The proposed model enables to predict the electromagnetic conducted interference generated in the power drive system when lightningconditions involve the earth electrodes.
