This work presents a computational analysis of transient currents on Lightning Protection Structures (LPS) of residential buildings and the electromagnetic field achieved inside them that induces voltages on internal circuits when lightning directly strikes the LPS. The approach adopted offers flexibility to design and discuss some kinds of LPS or their geometric configurations. It allows us to find the best protection at each situation and to take into account financial aspects as to the number of conductors and insulation levels required.
