This thesis presents different contributions to the analysis and improvement of the electromagnetic compatibility of the Large Size Telescopes (LST) of the Cherenkov Telescope Array North (CTA-N), located in El Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory (ORM) of La Palma island in Spain. The first LST, the LST1, is currently in commissioning phase. In this task, electromagnetic compatibility protocols have been developed along with various activities and experimental studies agreed in coordination with the rest of the CTA Collaboration groups. In this work, Finite Element Method (FEM) has been used as well as experimental verifications of the upgrades of the LST1 earthing system proposed and implemented by local companies, based on the standard UNE 21186, as it was the installation of a goose leg structure which intended to reduce the earth resistance...
