Title: Identification of Lighting Clouds Presented by Electric Dipole
Keywords: electric dipole, lightning clouds, identification, inverse p

Abstract: Identification of a moving lightning cloud is being carried out. The lightning cloud is seen as an electric dipole. The electromagnetic field distribution in moving environments is considered. For determination of the electromagnetic field, electromagnetic model and relativistic approach are used. A four-dimensional potential is applied. The magnetic vector potential and the scalar electric potential are the elements of four-dimensional potential. The Maxwell tensor is used to determine the vectors of the electromagnetic field. The electric field vector components of the electric dipole are obtained. The quality of dipole charge, its coordinates and velocity are determined by solving the inverse problem. To solve the inverse problem, the obtained analytical expressions for the components of the electric field, created by a moving electric dipole, are used
