    Electronic displays are being increasingly used in aircraft for the presentation of information to aircrew. This trend is due to two principal reasons, the steady improvements in the technology of electronic displays which are finding growing use in a wide range of markets, and the radical changes to the methods of distributing and processing data on board both military and civil aircraft. However... View full abstract»

  • Experimental study of factors affecting capacitance of high-voltage compressed-gas capacitors

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):273 - 277
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (574 KB)

    Various factors affecting the value and voltage dependence of the capacitance of high-voltage compressed-gas capacitors, used as high-voltage measurement standards, are considered. An experimental method for testing the mechanical stability of the electrodes is presented. Results of the comparison of a standard capacitor with other gas capacitors are presented, and it is concluded that a compresse... View full abstract»

  • Arc interruption

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):294 - 297
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (533 KB)

    The paper reviews forms and techniques of current interruption in general, and considers the techniques, effects and implications of arc interruption in a vacuum and in gas at atmospheric or higher pressures. Arcelectrode and arc-column problems are presented, followed by treatment of the four established media for arc interruption. View full abstract»

  • Review of high-voltage gas breakdown and insulators in compressed gas

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):303 - 312
    Cited by:  Papers (13)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1771 KB)

    In the past ten years there have been significant advances in the theoretical and experimental analysis of high-voltage gas breakdown and surface flashover of insulators in compressed gases. This has probably been fostered by the recent growth in the design and application of gas-insulated high-voltage equipment. The review describes the characteristics of compressed-gas breakdown, including the e... View full abstract»
