Great catch Jonny - the mu symbol in the text got lost in the web translation. We'll get that corrected.

The article mentions 8/20 surge pulses as 8ms/20ms. That's wrong. The time scale is in microseconds. A pulse of 8kV with 20ms decay is a *very* large energy. TVSes are capable of absorbing power up to 400~5000W, depending on the model, but a 20ms pulse would require a much larger device. - Jonny
