This paper verifies and analyzes the proposed wide range (WR) model for surge arresters. The verification analysis of various surge arrester models is performed; 1) on the model itself independent of power systems, and 2) by considering that surge arrester models are connected to a simple power transmission system. In order to accurately verify the performance of the WR model, some of the well-known surge arrester models are utilized. Simulation results reveal the advantages of the new model compared to traditional models already available in the literature.
