High-voltage surge testing is often used to simulate lightning strikes, capacitor bank switching. or large transformer spikes and transients. The common standard used to simulate surge testing is IEC 61000-4-5. Its waveform is a combination wave which is generated by a generator to deliver a 1.2/50us voltage surge across a high resistance load of more than 100 ohm and an 8/20us current surge into a short circuit.
