The paper reviews transient which is a disturbance in electrical/electronic systems. It produces harmonics, over currents and overvoltage resulting into colossal damage to equipment. The objective is to identify the causes and effects of transient. Secondary sources were used for the study. The paper posits that there is high rate of electrical/electronic equipment failure which posses’ great concern to designers and users of electrical/electronic appliances coupled with inadequate knowledge and selection of appropriate protective devices. Consequently, mitigation methods involving suppressors which block or clamp and or conduct transient are presented in order to prevent or reduce its effects, thereby, protecting facilities from being destroyed, essentially to achieve operational effectiveness and service continuity.
