    Pre-breakdown electron emission and breakdown voltages have been studied for three experimental vacuum interrupters, two of which contained numerous glass particles the largest of which were typically 50 μm in their longest dimension. The contaminated interrupter differed from the uncontaminated interrupter in the following ways. 1) Continuously recorded Fowler-Nordheim plots had lower slo... View full abstract»

  • Insulation under the Action of Mobile, High-Current Discharges

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):68 - 73
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (535 KB)

    Thermal effects at and below the surface of an insulating material have been calculated when the material is subjected to a high-current, mobile electric discharge. The relationships between temperature conditions, energy density, velocity of discharge movement, and thermo-physical characteristics of the insulation are analyzed. Formulae for temperature distribution under various conditions are de... View full abstract»

  • A Test for the Effect of High Energy Arcs on the Flash-over Strength of Insulators in Compressed SF6

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):74 - 80

    A test method for evaluation of solid insulating material for insulators in Compressed Gas Insulated Transmission (CGIT) systems has been developed. The test measures the ability of an insulating surface to withstand voltage after being subjected to a high energy power arc across its surface. The test has been used to evaluate several different solid insulators in SF6 at 0.4 MPa. The test circuit ... View full abstract»

    Sparking potential measurements are reported on some thirty-five electronegative gases. Their value as replacement gases for SF6 has been analyzed in terms of their useful pressure range at lower operating temperatures, and has been empirically correlated with molecular structures. Figures of merit have been developed. View full abstract»

  • Some Computations and Observations on Corona-Stabilized Breakdown in SF6

    Loeb retracted his support for Hermstein's negative ions cloud theory and proposed that the reduction of electric field at the anode, due to the presence of positive ions space charge, could be responsible for the corona-stabilization in electronegative gases. Based on this comment, Abdel-Salam et al. proposed a semi-empirical criterion for the calculation of the breakdown voltage during corona-st... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1342 KB)

    Existing methods for testing effectiveness of lamination insulation coatings are reviewed. The results of comparative insulation resistance measurements are given, and characteristics of the Franklin method are analyzed. In spite of some drawbacks, the Franklin method can be used to evaluate the quality of insulation coatings. Improvements for the method are suggested. Other standardized methods f...

  • Interactions between the Solid and the Ions of the Liquid in Impregnated Paper

    Non-linear losses in heterogeneous iusulation (e.g. impregnated paper) are often attributed to ions oscillating between insulating paper walls without penetrating or even adhering on them. To investigate this problem, we studied the physico-chemical properties of capacitor paper and of other insulating solids having the same blocking behavior. We have investigated the transport of electrolytes acr... View full abstract»

  • Transient Current of Polyimide in the Time Range 10-4-101 Sec at Temperatures 180-280°C

    The transient electric current is obtained by applying a step voltage of 167 V on Kapton(R) type H-films of 25 and 76 pm thickness. The current consists of two components: one decays fast originating from a dielectric relaxation having approximately a single relaxation time τ; and the other is almost flat due to electric conduction. We find a correlation between the conductivity σ ... View full abstract»

    Water tree growth rates were measured at power frequency on compression molded plaques of nolyethylene, polystyrene and epoxy from water electrodes of controlled geometry. In spite of large changes in microvoid density, no significant differences in water tree growth rates were detected between steam and nitrogen treated polyethylenes. Water tree growth was followed for over 6 months in both polye... View full abstract»
